The New Year has started in the best way at HappyFabric: skill swapping with Emma from Stitching Me Softly! We learnt how to crochet, and taught Emma how to use our HTV (Heat Transfer/ Iron On Vinyl). Scroll down to see the video, or visit our 'How to HTV at home' blog to see the other side of the SKILLSWAP!
How to Crochet
Emma learned how to crochet whilst pregnant with her second daughter. She began designing children’s clothing because she wanted to make items for her own children that you wouldn’t find on the high street. Since then she has launched the business Stitching Me Softly where she sells items such as clothing and crochet kits, and teaches workshops.
Having such a wonderful talent in crochet, Emma taught us the basic techniques on how to start on her visit. I learnt how to create a small pot- which is so adorable in a teal recycled cotton cord! The pot is in the photo above- the kit for this is now available to buy here. Meanwhile, Jaymie created a crocheted necklace from a fuchsia cord- kit available here.
