The adventures of Georgia Mars,
Australian Artist/Crafter living abroad
04 February, 2012
Remember how I was looking for something to do while watching movies yesterday? Well, here it is. I always love the look of the union flag as a decorating motif. It has such a graphic quality, which, for me, has nothing to do with imperialism or nationalism or any such thing. I just think it's pretty. So I was wondering if I would be able to work out a way to make a flag with crochet. I had no idea if I would be able to do it. Lots of problem solving and yes, some trimmed edges to make it all fit.
But I love this. It's really bulky (3 layers of crochet) and really snuggy. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it when finished, but Matt loves it, and seeing as I was short a birthday present for him, it's already found an owner ( he was born in the "mother county" after all).
