Good Morning!! welcome to a new week and the countdown continues for us who are into Handmade Christmas gifts.
Today, I want to touch on the Finishing Touch to put our projects over the top, if it sounded cheesy, it’s okay, you got my point 🙂
When you finish the last row of your project your piece should look decent but if you want that professional “feel” to your work you need to give it a “Proper” ending, here comes the Edges/Borders, which is worked directly on your project, and it is different that the Trim which is done separately then attach to your work.
Craftsy has a nice guide which I have downloaded and it’s totally free, you can click here if you want to learn different techniques to give a flawless finish to your work.
This is a guide but like I often say: you can invent or make up your very own finishing stitches. I have invented several to use on my dishcloths and I will be sharing with you soon.
Remember Crochet is limitless when it comes to new stitches and techniques, you can “invent” your own stitches and techniques.
Let me share the Crab Stitch which is one of may favorites:
It is super easy, please click on the top photograph for the tutorial or go to You Tube for the visual tutorial.
If you like to showcase your projects please join Craftsy they have some fun projects and giveaways. You can learn and hopefully win at the same time.
Okay, so this is all for today, Have a Great Week Ahead!!! See You Soon..
