proof.

Here's the proof!

I can't crochet (or knit for that matter).
I could never make those pretty things I showed you yesterday!

But I was able to use this lopsided, misshapen creation...

Here.
When I decided a few years ago to cover the cushions with WHITE!
What was I thinking???

Amazingly enough, that little crocheted THING has
SAVED that chair cushion!!
It's still as white as when I had it covered!
Yeah!!

It's not the prettiest solution, but it works.
And THAT's what matters, right?
AND, it looks so much better when I can put a little
something right in the middle!

I made this mini pillow with felt and
a little bit of embroidery floss!
SUPER SIMPLE!

I'm adding this to amylou's sew and tell today.

  2. So funny! Keep at it--I am a novice on knitting, but I keep trying. Everyone in my family is getting a scarf for Christmas--weather they like it, or not!

  4. Just don't give up on the crochet.
    I love the little pillow. It would be great for a gift tag on a larger gift.

  9. I can't crochet either so I think you've done really well to complete something big enough to cover a chair.

  12. And it keeps the handmade look going in the house, too. It looks nice! As my friend Beth says, make something too perfect, it can lose the hand made charm. Make an error, it wasn't made in the factory, then! :-} pokey
