Welcome to my blog

If you enjoy finding a lot of different outlets for your creativity, then we may just be kindred spirits.
This blog is an outlet for my interest in miniatures, crochet, plastic canvas, and many other various arts and crafts.

I also love walking, taking digital photos, and most recently, have rediscovered an old love...bike riding! I purchased an amazing new bike, a comfy Townie by Electra this summer, and have been having a grand time exploring the area as though for the first time. It's like being a kid again!

If you enjoy any of these things too, pour a cup of coffee and tea, sit down, and join me.

Take care!

Crocheted T-Shirt Edging

Crocheted Shirt Edging
 I love this pink t shirt, but it shrunk lengthwise after washing and wasn't as long as I liked any more.  Also, I hate my upper arms and wanted longer sleeves, so I decided to adapt the shirt by adding crocheted edging to lengthen everything.

 I picked a free edging pattern from Ravelry

It's called the Irish Crochet Edging No. S261 Pattern, and can also be found on the Free Vintage Crochet website.

I used a Supersaver yarn because it matched the colors perfectly, and it worked well, but the pattern would look nicer if worked in crochet cotton.
