Crochet Embellishments Craftsy Course

Craftsy Logo

I looooove Linda being the instructor of this course.
She makes you smile. You makes you feel it's ok to be human
and her hints and tips make things really easy to follow and do.

I'm not doing the course in the lesson plan order.
I decided I would pick my favorite bits first.

The lesson I chose was Flower-Embellished Cardigan.
Linda teaches you everything from the basics so it's ideal for a beginner.
You get written and diagram instructions as well
as the video course.
You receive patterns for 6 different flowers.

As you can see Linda also shows you how to pin the 
flowers to make them look like different shapes.
Linda also talks you through using different colours
in the flowers. 
Linda uses different colours but I decided to go for a red theme.

One of the things she shows you is how to create a pin with your flower.

Here is mine.

And now for the cardigan.
The cardigan I used is quite old and looking a little tired.
Linda talks you through everything from positioning your flowers
right through how to attach them.
And here is my finished cardigan:

I have saved the other flowers and I'm going to dress up a few t-shirts as well :-)

This is a really easy course to follow
and Linda makes it lots of fun.
Keep a look out because there are more projects for the course to come.
