Thanks or no thanks to Pinterest, I’ve rediscovered crochet, something I used to associate with outdated gigantic lacey piano covers and ugly shawls.
Well, that’s cos the shawl I first made as a kid was ugly, with tension that was all over the place so that the shawl, while nominally a triangle, was rather misshapen.
Since then I’ve discovered that crochet is a really useful skill to have.
Dusting off my long forgotten knowledge with helpful articles on crochet basics, I have rediscovered its uses.
Something simple to start off, I was given a pair of bright flip flops and I thought I’d decorate them.
I took the tutorial from this really helpful site.
I bought cheap acrylic yarn from Daiso because I didn’t want to risk spoiling more expensive ones and also I anticipate the flip flops will get a lot of wear.
The yarn is really colourful and suits the bright flip flops.
I took the flower pattern from this site and worked them in two colours.
I’ve just made a pair of bright yellow flip flops even more insanely colourful! I’m not sure how long they’ll last though.
