Style School Projects 1 & 2

I just wanted to show you my first two projects from Style School.

Project #1 - Yarn Wreath

We were supposed to make faux brooches to put on the wreath but I couldn't get mine to look right so I ended up just crocheting 3 big hearts out of chunky yarn. I like the look of this much better.

Project #2 - Yarn Wrapped Hanger Mobile

I made this mobile using my wedding theme. Red, white & black were my colors and I used red gerbera daisies for my flowers. I crocheted the daisy. I used the tutorial Elsie's linked in the class to edit my photos. The little ball on the end is also crocheted.


closer look at the photos

The first two projects were really fun! I can't wait to make more! Let me know what you think of what I have so far!
