My 2019 Crafty Runway
1) Crochet Mother-of-the-Groom Gown
Although this is not a home décor item, I couldn’t let a summary of my crafty year go by without mentioning one of my biggest triumphs of this year… my Mother-of-the-Groom Gown.
2) Crochet Doilies
I had this desire to go work on some classics in crochet this year. So, I tried out doily making for the first time and, I have to say, I really enjoyed my experience. I made several holiday themed pieces and even hosted a Doily-Exchange on my YouTube channel. I sincerely enjoyed my makes and I want to continue making doilies for my home and as gifts.
The pattern is a free pattern by Marsha Glassnor called Boo! that can be found on Ravelry at https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr... .
I made a Pom-pom Bathroom Rug this year. I used 6 balls of Pomp-a-doodle yarn by Red Heart in the colorway Quirky. The yarn is actually slip stitched to a rug backing to create the rug. I basically followed this pattern by Yarnspirations, www.yarnspirations.com/row-en/red-heart-trendy-oval-pompom-rug/RHC0524-015268M.html
www.craftpassion.com/giant-doily-rug/. This rug was part o my Christmas Décor.
My final category for home décor would be crocheted wall-art. I find fiber based wall art very attractive and I find that it softens the wall of my home so I feel more relaxed and at peace. So when I saw a post on Instagram announcing a photo-tutorial for making a Christmas Tree Wall Hanging out of granny squares, I had to go down that rabbit hole.
