How many of you go to craft fairs or gift shops and see beautiful things you would love to buy, but don’t, because in your head you are thinking ‘I’m not buying that because I could make that myself!’ then make a mental note to ‘make bag’ or ”make necklace’…a year later that mental note is hanging on there, giving you a prod every so often.
Well this is me all over – I’ve ‘not bought’ so many lovely things in my life, thinking ‘I’ll just make one myself’ without ever seeing that thought into reality. Well not this time! I was in Touchwood, Solihull and I saw this lovely scarf in Republic. This time, instead of ‘not buying’ it, I bought it, yey! Having examined it in detail in the shop I decided I could replicate it in many lovely ways – so I bought it to use as a pattern. Here it is.I also thought this would be the driving force behind me learning to crochet too! Those tassels look almost do-able. So watch this space!
