The apartment still looks like an earthquake scene, but I managed to make something anyway!
While unpacking I found a carpet base I had bought years ago with the idea of making a crochet carpet, but never did because it wasn't sturdy enough. So it went to the bottom of a box.
Now, this was quite a serendipitous find since I've been researching handmade carpets for a few days, with the idea of making something for the bathroom. And there was the perfect base! Or at least I hoped so... This time I tried the latch hooking technique, only with a big crochet hook, and it worked!:)
I used jersey remnants and scraps, an old nightgown and several old t-shirts for the strips. This is quite a small carpet, but boy it took a lot of fabric! I think I might have found a new favorite technique for scrap busting!
I love the result and so does Z. But he refused to step on it in the bathroom. He says it is too pretty.:D
Oh, I also cleaned my sewing machines!! Yay!! I can't wait to get back to sewing!
