Hello, my dear readers! This post is the final installment of the Christmas Gifts Showcase Series. This particular gift started with one single ball of Noro yarn, out of which I made circles of varying sizes and colours.
When I made the circles almost a year and half ago, my original idea was to sew them onto a big crochet bag. But time went by, and the circles remained tucked away in their tin box, as no crochet bag ever materialised.
Recently, I thought about the project again and realised that a bag might not be the best way to showcase the layout I had come up with, and from then on I knew that the circles would become part of a wall art piece. Then I decided I would make a Christmas gift out of it.
So let's have a look:
I sewed all circles on a large piece of cream felt with invisible thread. I had a little bit of a nightmare using the invisible thread because it is, well, invisible, and therefore very easy to lose sight of, especially when you belong to the blind-as-a-bat species... Anyway, I managed to do it in the end, and put the finishing touch to the project by adding a row of blanket stitches and slip stitches all around the felt rectangle. Ideally I should have waited to take pictures until AFTER I'd blocked the piece, but daylight was fast dwindling unfortunately. So, sorry about those wrinkles!
Here are some pictures of details:
And this concludes the Christmas Gifts Series! About time as well, since this is nearly the end of January :D
Thank you for reading anyway, and see you soon for more crafty adventures!
