Description

Because I love my friends very dearly, I decided that I would make some of them who would be braving the freezing Hamilton winter with me, items that will keep away the cold. This was not just an exercise in love but also a sewing adventure as I kind of thought “hmmm if I sew that together… and then add this bit on the end… and maybe some tassels?”

Over all, I think it was pretty successful.
I did try to think about my friends, what they like, and what sort of things they wear but I also really wanted to recycle what we already had at home and make some things out of scraps which might otherwise never be used up.

This is also a teaser for those of you who follow my side project Alice & Anne for things to come… As my friends also volunteer to be my fashion guinea pigs…

    I agree, very nice mix. Did you make holes in the fabric and then crochet into them, or crochet and then sew it to the fabric?

      I finished the ends of the material with a big stitch in the gray wool I was going to use, and then crocheted onto those stitches – does that make sense?
      They were massive stitches and I had to make sure I didn’t gather it up in the process…
