I have designed this mandala as a table mat, but you can make it to be used as a
doily, plant pot mat, place mat etc. or crochet it as a decorative wall art, ideal to
use up all those bright colored odd scraps of yarn to make a pretty piece of home
decor, it’s an easy fun little project that you can crochet up fairly quickly.
Pretty and colorful mandalas continue to be very popular, they can be used for so
many things not just to hang on the wall, use them for trivets, table center mats,
place settings, plant pot mats or if you make them double sided they make ideal
hot mats for vegetable dishes etc. The color combinations are endless and they are
also fun to make!
The woodland baby coat, this newborn coat can be paired up with the woodland
booties and beanie hat, (also featured on my blog) this time I have used the
colors the opposite way round, the woodland collection now has three items
in it, which can when put together make a nice set for your own baby or to
give as a gift to friends and family.
Make this slanting shells cowl as a treat to yourself to ward off the last few weeks
of Winter, it is a great replacement for a scarf, made in a worsted weight yarn with
a leaning shell design, wear it loose around your neck for style or folded over for
warmth, I have crocheted it in a pretty lilac color, but it would look nice in dark
Valentine’s Day is just a couple of day’s away and is a perfect day to create some
lovely crochet items for, I have made a roundup of seven love heart patterns that
I have selected from some of the blogs that I admire and support, you can use
some of them to make added decoration to your gifts and crochet items.
