I am happy to say we have completed another Road Trip. This time we learned the basics of Tapestry Crochet.
Tapestry Crochet is a technique that uses more than 1 color and it goes by several names, click here if you would like to know the history of Tapestry Crochet.
I decided that we needed a cute, chic and fashionable coin purse. If you have a designer purse now you can complete the look with a Designer Tapestry Coin Purse, that you won’t be embarrassed to take out in public…. 🙂
I like this project because you can “paint” anything with this form of crochet. It takes lots of concentration but the stitch that is used is the single crochet which you can master in like 2 minutes.
This type of crochet is ideal for purses, rugs, hats, etc, I have seen it used for winter sweaters, socks and gloves, especially in Nordic countries, it has been around a long time.
First thing I learned is that I need to check often that I am “carrying” the unused color, if not, I may find out that it was left behind, lots of stitches ago and then I need to unravel (which I hate) to go back and pick it up.
Second thing that I learned is that I need to keep separated the different colors of thread/yarn, preferably by a good distance, that way I don’t need to deal with lots of tangles.
So, yes, I like Tapestry Crochet and I want to keep practicing this technique, do you agree with me??
So here is my new Chic Coin Purse 🙂
