new year, new craft: Crochet
Happy New Year!
It's already mid January, can you believe it?
I've started with a new craft, crochet.
To be honest I thought it was going to be an easy one, after the baskets weaving.
Well, I think I picked a quite difficult tutorial by lebenslustiger, for my first beginner project: these adorable little chunky crochet hearts!
While I was waiting for my yarn to arrive, 100% recycled cotton from Hoooked I decided to practice with some leftover yarn. Then I realized that making hearts is not as easy as it looks!
Making them symmetrical and round is not so simple. It need practice, a lot of it.
By the time I received the yarn I felt confident, however, this time I wanted to make only perfect hearts. I did and undid so many hearts!!!! At the end I had to accept that I couldn't make five exact hearts and I simply did my best.
I added some filling material from an old cushion to make them fuller (after I took the picture on the snow).
I'm happy with the result and the girls can't wait to have them in their room.
I loved this project and I'm sure I'll be making more of them throughout the year. This is a brilliant tutorial.
Fancy trying it too? Let me know if you have.
