Crochet Joining

unikatissima Crochet Joining

At the moment I’m crocheting a lot and when crocheting, I prefer to make those previously mentioned medaillons that I must join.
Because I don’t like to sew them together afterwards I’m joining them while crocheting (see links below).
First thing I like about is that I don’t have to sew ;-)) and second that I can watch the item grow.

Addendum of February 2009: The link above doesn’t work anymore, you can find the instruction for the ‘Flat Braid Square Joining Method’ now as PDF (about 1 MB) at Priscilla’s Crochet – Free Pattern Index, check there for ‘Afghan Edgings & Joinings’.

Concerning unikatissima

Award I love your blog

KreativMonster was so kind to award me with the Award I love your blog.
I’m so sorry that it took so long to thank you.

Just as Cora I have the problem not to know, which blog to award further: I love every blog and website I’m presenting here (included Coras (KreativMonsters) blog :)).

DIY Shrinky Dinks

unikatissima DIY Shrinky Dinks

I found at craftster a tutorial on how to make DIY Shrinky Dinks. I liked this (I don’t like to buy new materials, especially when I haven’t tried the technique yet).
Additionally I made a little research and found more (very similar) tutorials (see also Links below).
I really must try this, although I will wait until summer when I can easily ventilate the kitchen, because I’m always afraid of toxic gases.
Until then I can find out perhaps which of the odd plastic dishes I can use ;-)
