Brace yourself for a bit of bling! My latest project for Simply Crochet is a sparkly one and with Christmas round the corner, what could be better than a bit of metallic thread in the shape of stars:
I made these simple little crochet coasters to accompany my technical feature in issue 38 of the magazine, which is all about how to work embroidery stitches on crochet fabric.
The stars are so simple to create that I’m hoping to see these embroidered metallic stars on all sorts of other crochet projects, and even knitted and sewn projects – they’re not just for Christmas, you know, they’ll look great all winter. I’m secretly hoping to see one large embroidered star on the front of a sweater, Christmas jumper style – that would make my day!
If you like them and want the pattern, you’ll need Simply Crochet magazine issue 38, which is out now.
