My mum's birthday was coming up (yeah, I'm about a month behind in my posts... sorry) and Iwanted to give her something personal.
Filet Crochet in plain, white, cotton thread using a 3mm hook. it's about 30cms in width. pattern designed by me. it basically took about 3 x 2 hour karate lessons (husband and child do the karate, I sit on the sidelines getting bored lol) plus some evenings of TV watching.
it's lined with velvet, you can't really tell on the pictures (damned camera phone) but I have turned the velvet right side out so the fluffy side is beneath the filet and gives another dimesnsion of texture, and the smooth side is facing inwards.
