I decided to make a bowl by crocheting a circle and then not increasing stitches so the sides would curve up. I used a strip of fabric which was approximately one inch wide. Along with that fabric, I used a novelty eyelash yarn. As I crocheted, my bowl looked like a nest. I hate to give up on such a lovely creation. I placed a decorative Christmas bird ornament in the nest and went with it. It is cute.....not what I originally planned. I think one of those comments about getting lemons and making lemonade should go here.
I recently made 3 fabric trivets. One was made with two different fabrics. It can also be used as a pot holder. (Rustic yet shabby chic) The second was made with eyelash yarn, fabric strips, and a sparkle yarn. This turned out real pretty, but the sparkle yarn is almost invisible. In the third trivet, I used handspun Merino yarn to crochet an edge around the trivet. The yarn was mostly pink variegated but it had a pink, curly Wensleydale/Columbia locks placed in-between a second yarn as it was plied through the spinning wheel. I haven't decided if I like this trivet.
|I used handspun yarn throughout the complete trivet, along with fabric strips. It is all natural wool or cotton. The curly wool is pretty, but I an not real a big fan of this trivet.|
|Trivet made with fabric, eyelash yarn, fabric strips, and sparkle yarn. The sparkle yarn barely shows. I think I would use two strands of sparkle next time.|
