Handmade art always takes time. It takes skill. It takes a horrendous number of mistakes. It takes sleepless nights and years of practice.
No one wakes up one day and just says “oh, I know! I’ll become a talented artist today!” Yeah, that’s not how it works. It takes a lifetime to earn the skills. The amount of patience that’s required is more than the “average person” can spare.
This started out as a Christmas Gift for someone special, but I figured if I was going to make something, I may as well write a pattern while I am at it! This is actually the base for a sugar skull project. You can decorate it with anything you like! Fabric paints, embroidery, surface crochet… the possibilities are endless!
I have broken down this pattern by stitches, so it looks longer than what it actually is.
Ok, streaming on Twitch has to go on a temporary hiatus. I am having some issues with my laptop. So either I have to wait until another windows update, or get my mac upgraded. I have been looking for a reason to get a new computer, but I wasn’t expecting it to be this lol
As some of you know, since the internet has been being a pita the past couple of weeks, I have been doing a TON of crochet. I even taught myself how to read patterns. It got me to thinking that maybe I could write my own. So… I present to you, MY VERY FIRST PATTERN! I did write it in shorthand for those of you who are already comfortable with pattern reading, but I have explained it further down the post.
I purchased a sticker from my StreamLabs shop so I could check the quality. I was pleasantly surprised! The color is fantastic and it sticks really well to the cleaned surface of my plastic sketchbook cover.
