No. I'm not on the edge of insanity. Well, maybe I am, but I'm referencing a different kind of edge right now. Yeah, baby, I am talking about crocheting on the edge of a pillowcase.
I love how this looks. I have Beata from Rose Hip to thank for the amazing inspiration. I haven't been this obsessed excited about creating something lovely for a long time. Thanks, Beata.
I've decided to host a little pillowcase-crochet-along called On The Edge... Can you play?
On The Edge... will work like this:
Week 1: Getting the Goods--This week we will be gathering supplies.
Week 2: Stitching up a Storm--We will sew a pillowcase with a flap that hides the end of your pillow.
Week 3: A Firm Foundation--This week we will prepare the pillowcase for edging.
Week 4: On the Edge--We will crochet the scallop pattern and post to Flickr (We'll see if I can actually get a group set up.)
Sounds like fun. Don't you think? Even if you don't crochet, you should give this a try. I will include links on how to do the crochet stitches and recommend resources for beginners. I didn't crochet much beyond a simple chain until a few weeks ago. Really. It's not that hard. You can do it!
Here's what you need to do if you would like to join me...
- Leave a comment telling me you want to play.
- Grab the On the Edge...button from my sidebar and post it on your blog if you have one. I hope the button works. I am trying to make friends with Photoshop Elements and HTML. They're prickly personalities, for sure. I just know I will love them once I get to know them, though.
- Watch for the Week 1 post next Monday, March 1st.
See? Easy. I hope you can play.
