This is it !!!!

....The nice piece of fabric has its own identity, eventually!!!

When I left you last time, the thing was still like this...

...and I was thinking : what to do with that?
Then I remembered a nice pattern, written by Nata for last Christmas....I had to crochet some curlicues!!! So, I did!!
The difference with Nata's pattern is, mainly, that I only crocheted 8 chains for the loop and I attached it at the bottom of the circle (precisely, 9 circles!), closing the loop with a slip stitch...

...then, I followed the pattern word by word, till I had my first curlicue done... I started a second one...

...and I had two!!!!...

...and then a third one...

....and more....

...and more (!!!!)...

...a close up... happy to take these photos (tons : sorry for that!), but the sun outside was very kind with me.... only curlicues???? If you know me well, you even know that the answer to that question will be NO ! Having still a lot of yarn, I opted for some pompoms (27!), with the idea to put them on the other side of the thing...

...obviously, I had to trim them all (do you love the mini basket, made by me, btw???)...

Later, I went out in my back garden where I cut a thick bamboo branch, that I cleaned from the dirt and from extra bulges and leaves with the idea to use it like a rod...

...and after 27 quadruple knots (!!!!), I finally had my big rug panel....

...that is still waiting to be hung on the right wall....


Thank you to all the ones that have lefts ideas and good advices on how to use this nice piece of fabric, because they are all doable!!!!! ;oD

  26. It's amazing and I just realized that it actually looks like it was influenced by some Malaysian(or chinese?) handiwork....isn't there some traditional craft that also has pom poms on it? Thanks for sharing on Craft schooling sunday!
