After my first handmade sketch book, I’ve decided on experimenting my crochet on a ready-made A4 sketch book that’s available in any stationary shop. The idea is to crochet on a metal ring-bounded sketch book rather than punching holes on paper (one hole puncher) which makes my hands numb (making the first sketch book). Although it is not total handmade, but it safes me more energy for the crochet part =). So here’s my one & only sketch book with crochet designed on it:
I’ve choose white, grey & black tones for the crochet and a black hard cover ring-bounded sketch book (30x21cm).
The black gigantic flower (D 13cm) is a pattern I’ve used from a book that I’ve bought quite sometime ago while in Japan. Actually I’ve finished crochet it long time ago but did not know what to do with it yet. I thought this is just the appropriate time to use it =)
The leaves & the edging is my own design. This time I used crochet beads technique for the edging with some pearl white beads to make it stand out. The leaves are just a random pattern that I just crochet along the way.
The satin ribbon label was ordered from KucinPurple. I designed it & asked them to print it for me on the satin ribbon.
What do you think about this one? I haven’t found anyone use the crochet edging technique like this before. Please do share if anyone has found a similar method =)
I think I would used it for my crochet design collection photos rather than a sketch book =P.
