More Crochet ~ crochet baby booties and a crochet bag for my (ahem) ever-advancing crocheting skills…
Not put off by my previous attempts at crocheting, I’ve had another go. We went to away for the Easter holidays and
as I couldn’t take my sewing machine and fabric stash with me I took instead my crochet hooks and wool (nay, yarn!). While pretending to listen to the Little People, I busied myself with a very basic bag (in a gorgeous deep purple although the pictures don’t do the colour justice), which I embellished with my previously-made cream rose.
I also made some baby booties. For nobody in particular, but I just wanted to give them a go because they look so sweet and they use a new stitch for me – the half-treble. They don’t look nearly as professional as they should given the hours I put in. I did a whole load of unravelling (weirdly satisfying to watch your hard work disappear in a matter of seconds) when I lost count on numerous occasions, and when I realised I’d crocheted the toe bit on the side (!), and kept going until I got what you can see here in these photos.
There’s no tutorial, as I am many, many moons away from being able to teach my ‘skills’ to anyone else.
And I’m still not sure what it means by sewing the ends in – I’m kind of tucking them in and out of the other stitches and hoping for the best. :S Maybe someone can enlighten me?
