For a long time now I have been wanting to have a go at some crochet edgings,
so when Merion at Love Crochet asked if I would put a tutorial together
on decorating tea towels and pillowcases I have to admit I jumped at the chance.
I think I had always thought that it would be horribly complicated -
but in reality it's such a quick and satisfying project to do that there
was just no stopping once I'd started !
I bought the cheapest of the cheap tea towels and pillowcases
but I don't think you'd ever know once the magic has been worked !
I found the best yarn to use was DMC Cotton 4 ply and it comes in such an array
of colours I reckon you could match pretty much any tea towel or bedding set.
You can find the full tutorial here - all completely and utterly free -
and ready for you to give it a whirl.
Oooh, and just before I go,
I am bursting to give you a little sneaky peek of next weeks Crochet with Kate tutorial...
.... little Animal Taggy Blankets.
I am sooooo excited about this one and can't wait to share it with you.
