Cover-up

crocheted cover on glass

A nice combination of things I thought I really should do came together in this fun little project.

I bought Vintage Crochet at Loop a few weeks ago, and wanted to use it; I’ve been threading hundreds of beads; and I wanted something little to offer to a friend I think would appreciate it.

The pattern (for a sugar bowl cover) calls for buttons, or a heavier bead would work well too. These little ones will help the cover hang down the side of the cup or bowl, but mightn’t be enough if used somewhere windy.

I still amn’t very skilled with beads, although I like the idea of working with them. I just amn’t very good about wearing them!

190. Beginner’s Guide to Bead Netting by Madeleine Rollason

This book does anticipate rather more enthusiasm than I brought to it today, but it still showcases some really beautiful beaded items (in all methods), mostly from the past, although the guided projects are pretty too. Search Press really do bring out very good books.
