One of my blogging friends The Boy and Me put a request out for people to crochet strawberries for a tea party her sister was organising to raise money for Breast Cancer. I thought this was a brilliant idea and couldn't wait to help out.
The pattern I used is by Anna Nikipirowicz at Moochka who designed a strawberry plant for Breast Cancer Care month.
The brilliant people at Make it Coats Crafts sent me the Rowan Glacé Cotton yarn that was recommended for the pattern and it is a dream to work with. I may never use another cotton yarn, its really smooth, doesn't spilt and moves through my hook and fingers so easily. I may have to plan some Christmas decorations with it!
I only made the strawberries and and tops as there were turned into key rings to sell.
So here they are:
I started with the strawberry bodies
Then I made the tops
Next stop was the strawberry seeds
Then they were ready to put together
I am really happy with they way they turned out!
Over £500 has been raised so far and I am so happy to have contributed to that.
You can host your own Strawberry Tea party or donate here.
What will my next Make It Coats Crafts project be!
