Yoohoo.. March is the month of crochet and I hope to write more on this topic. Crochet has been my love all these while since I picked it up when I was 12 years old… Yup.. I’m sure you be wondering why I’m such a boring teenager where many others are doing other things interesting. Well back then we don’t have the luxury of the internet. For me, I hang out mostly at my local craft shops and made friends with these craft-loving people. So anyhow I saw these ladies doing crochet and thought maybe I should try it out too..
Fast forward to this time and age… I think I’m able to crochet faster than I stitch. To celebrate the start of National Crochet, I’ve made all these little hearts for my humble art space.
You may find the heart pattern here.
So an up-close look at it…
How I crochet the heart is as follows:
I’ve crochet two pieces (front and back). To make the ornament up, I then crochet using crab-stitch to by inserting the beads at the edge. I then stuff it with polyester. After which, I made a loop and then I sew in some flower and ribbons to the top. Yes is really crab-stitch.. I did not type it wrongly. You can view the you-tube video here. I feel using crab stitch, the beads will seat nicely on the edge.
So What do you think of the final out come?
Do you like it?
I’ll come back more later for crochet project.
