After making my Prim Pleated Teacosy I quickly cast on my next version. I had seen a couple of checkered versions and felt that an even greater level of chintz could be achieved!! I have to tell you that this has been a couple of week in the project bag. It has been the on-off knitting companion, but I managed to finish it yesterday.
In the meantime I read Issue 3 of Mollie Makes with the delightful crochet flowers. Now I have made many dozen crochet blooms, and even created my own versions. What I liked about these little chaps was the combination of embroidery, felt and ribbon. Could it get more girly? Well in some ways I might have gone too far. I am not sure a home can be found for it. But I did enjoy making it. The pattern I used was from GMC’s Tea Cozies book. I then used the flower ideas from Issue 3 of Mollie Makes.
