The Crochet Liberation Front Patch


This is my latest project. I volunteered to test the pattern for this patch for Share....she designed it for inclusion in the new Crochet Liberation Front crochet pattern book, which will be offered for sale later this year. I am hoping her pattern makes the cut. I really liked it and that was the main reason I volunteered to test the pattern for her. If you are on Ravelry, you can join the Crochet Liberation Front Forum or if you dont belong to Ravelry, you can check out the CLF blog.

This was really my first foray into anything remotely resembling Tapestry Crochet. Its not tapestry, as the back and the front arent identical. but keeping track of the different colors and picking them up and letting them down correctly took time to master....and using thread and tiny hooks made it even more challenging. After a few messed up tries, I finally got the hang of it. Oh, and the patch isnt narrower at the bottom...thats my lousy camera work. Its an even rectangle :)


Now I just have to figure out where I want to put the patch. I am going to use Heat Bond to adhere it to whatever I finally decide to put it on. A jacket, maybe? Or a project bag? Where ever I put it, though, its going to look cool! Many thanks to Share for giving me the pattern and the opportunity to make this great patch!

On to other things now....


Crochet, Away!

Hi Sandy, the patch looks great. It would definitely look nice on a project bag.

Hi, friend Sandy!
I was very happy with his visit and his loving comment.
Thank God, the surgery was a success of Roberto. The result of biópcia was excellent. The cancer eventually. It is now only awaiting the recovery from surgery, to make the other party.
Your crochet for The Crochet Liberation front Patch have a great look.
I was happy to have liked the sapatinho of baby with the Crochet Stitch Sônia Maria. If you do, let me know so that I can post in my blog. If you so permit.
I love to disclose the work on my blog made by friends with the crochet stitch have created. It's a way I found to repay the affection.
Have a beautiful week.
Hugs love with the friend,
Sonia Maria

Hi, amiga Sandy!
Fiquei muito feliz com a sua visita e seu comentário carinhoso.
Graças a Deus, a cirurgia do Roberto foi um sucesso. O resultado da biópcia foi excelente. O câncer acabou. Agora, é só aguardar a recuperação da cirurgia, para se fazer a outra parte.
Fiquei feliz por ter gostado do sapatinho de bebê com o Crochet Stitch Sônia Maria. Se o fizer, me avise, para que eu possa divulgar no meu blog. Se você assim o permitir.
Gosto de divulgar no meu blog os trabalhos feitos pelas amigas com o crochet stitch que criei. É uma forma que encontrei de retribuir o carinho.
Tenha uma linda semana.
Hugs com carinho da amiga,
Sônia Maria
