I got a bee in my bonnet this week, and wanted to get something crafty and portable! A sewing machine is not in that category. I have tried knitting and it did not strike a chord in my life, so I thought I would try something different...CROCHETING!!!!
So Julia found me this awesome book, and needle set for $9.99, and I set to work.
My first creation I tried out the single crochet stitch in baby blue
Then I decided to try something different in my favorite shade of green. I tried the double half crochet stitch, and it started out rough. I had many problems with turning the corners as you can see with the wave in the middle....
I got the hang of the corners after watching a great youtube tutorial and the end was very even~
Not wanting to waste all of my effort and time that I had spent so I turned it into a neck warmer of sorts...Laura style!
So I grabbed some thrifted buttons from an old coat of mine, stitched them in place, and Voila...
Perfectly hidden curvy parts under my collar, and snuggly warm for these cold days~
~Thanks for looking~
