I'm very excited to introduce my new (and first ever) weekly regular post:
I will be doing a regular weekly post on/of something that I have made. The one rule is that it has to be something I made - not necessarily 'this week', but it will be posted each week on a Sunday. I'll also tag each post with 'MADEit' so you can click on the link and go through all of the 'MADEit' posts as they build up. Aaand, I'll set up a board titled 'MADE IT, this week...' on my Pinterest so you can follow that too if you like.
I know it's a Monday today, but that's ok, right? I have a lot of 2012 Christmas presents to show off... be prepared for total crochet/craftiness inspiration (if I may say so myself).
MADE IT, this week...
I absolutely LOVE this crochet piece of art I made for my awesome sister. It is made from only one ball of wool...
It is (approximately) a 10 x 12inch canvas frame. Firstly I cut off the canvas [carefully] with a craft knife. Then I began crocheting, using the 'join as you go' method of joining the cute granny squares.
The crochet is joined only on the back in the 'gutter' using a hot glue gun. I used simple string and a staple-gun to attach the 'hanging string' to two sides - so my sister had the option to hang it horizonal or vertical, whichever way she liked.
I don't know about you, but I love the colours, I love the way the colours change gradually and slowly, almost so you don't notice when you're crocheting with it.
I hope you're feeling inspired. Thank you for reading my first ever 'MADE IT, this week...' post.
