Default Glow Bug Glitters?

Hi There.

I've seen tons of tutorials on line for tying glow bugs, but not that include glittery threads or fluffy white feathers to imitate egg casing. Does anybody have a pattern they can share?

Thanks.

Johnny,

I don't have anything with glittery thread, but... here's one for you to try.

Hook: Use your favorite hook.

Veil: Comb out some egg yarn so that it looks very sparse.

Egg: Use very bright thread, floss, or if you can find it some small sparkle chenille.

Take your veil and push it onto the hook so that the eye goes through the center of your combed out yarn and tie it on to the hook.

Tie in your "egg" material, and wrap a small egg over where you tied in the veil. Whip finish and fold the veil back over the egg and you are done.

I hope this helped, if not feel free to ask whatever you would like.

Dan
