I have surprised myself with a small project today, actually I crocheted the edging to another dish towel I put aside as Christmas gifts for my friends…. Surprised because I found myself being in love with a nice chart….
Eeeeeek……!!!!! FILET CROCHET LACE….. oh, no, no, I’m not sick at that point!!!!
My Mum is used to it not me!!!!NOT ME!!!
Well,as usual,I’m so wrong!!!
I have found the above chart so nice and I have decided to challenge my prejudice!!!! And here follow the photos with the result of my morning work…
(….I appreciate more and more my laundry as background for my photos….. 🙂 )
A quick,easy and cheap crochet.You’ll need a really small amount of yarn for it, the remains of previous projects would be perfect 🙂 At first, the lace was thought for a towel of a nice deep pastel blue shade but I made a mistake…. instead of straching and pinning the lace I decided just to iron it (yeah,yeah,you’re right, I’m so lazy….) and I streched it too much….luckily for me,the lenght of my lace fits well the towel from the photos and I prefered to lose the neat outline of the desing but obtain an item of good proportions…
So…. what do you say? Does the lace look ok even if sewed on a towel of a bright colour? Is the overall look of my project contemporary and IN or is it better to leave the filet crochet to our Mums? Hope it is not because I’ve got an idea while crocheting the above edging which I’d like to realize…..
