Yesterday morning I thought
HELP I don`t have a new granny square pattern.
Then a sigh of relief
because I remembered we are making 8 squares
with the cute hearts from last week.
So no new granny pattern this week.
This week a tutorial of a gift wrapping idea
with a crochet border.
You will need:
a piece of wall paper
1. Double up the wall paper.
Put the gift on top to see what size you need.
Cut the wall paper .
Cut it larger then the gift you want to put inside
otherwise it won`t fit.
The back longer than the front so you can fold it like and envelope
2. Draw and cut round corners
at the top.
3. I wanted to join the sides with my sharp crochet hook
but I don`t think it`s suited for paper
so I used the blanket stitch.
4. blanket stitch
5. Go all the way round with the blanket stitch
6. If your yarn isn`t long enough
just tie it together
7 and 8. Crochet a border.
I made sc, 6 ch, skip a stitch, sc,
continue with this pattern.
9.On top in the middle I made 12 ch
to make a buttonhole.
But this depends on the size of the button you`re using.
10. Sew on the button ( just tie the yarn inside).
11 and 12. I added a snowflake.
There are lots of patterns to be found on the internet.
Here is a link to Attic24 with one who looks like the one I made.
