I learned to crochet last year and can’t believe it took me so long to pick up this great craft. I also joined Fabric Knitting & Crochet at Ravelry & on Flickr (hosted by Heather Knitz who makes beautiful projects, crafting supplies, craft kits, patterns and tutorials).
At Ravelry, there’s a March Knit/Crochet-along “Baskets” and “The Complementary Color Challenge”. So, here’s what I’ve come up with….
First step was to dig through my stash of fabrics and decide what would be complementary – pink and green popped out at me with their spring appeal. Oh yeah, let’s throw in “K” week for “Kelly Green”. Off to the ironing board I go with the pink fabric and what do I discover??? My vintage pink fabric scraps have turned out to be someone’s work-in-progress. (A bag if clothes and fabric from a local senior, love these finds!)
So, will add that to my “to-do” pile.. it’s a toddler size I think(it’s sitting on top of my clothes dryer and is kind of small). Not sure how I’ll put it together yet. Will take suggestions!
Well, to make a long story short, ripping fabric into strips is not my favorite thing to do… but I went ahead and free-formed a bowl and edging. Took the edging out and did it over again. Here’s what I came up with, finally:
Kelly green bowl with pink scalloped edging. Overall, I think this working with fabric is something I have to get the hang of. It looks like I needed to pull tighter in some spots or finesse the size needle I used per the width of the fabric.
