I made this crochet piece a while back and forgot about it till I used one of my crochet flowers for one of my cards. This is again from the book by Carol Meldrum called Easy Beaded Crochet. I have definitely not reached the stage where I can make my own designs so till then…..follow instructions! 🙂
This is the best picture I could take. Otherwise, it comes out too fuzzy so please bear with me 🙂 I have not finished the piece and have left tails as I have not yet decided what to do with it. Have not quite envisioned a use for it. Any suggestions??
