#WhatICrochet - Strawberries

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 GlacĂ© 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!
