Can you guess what they are?
I made these last night. I was inspired by this photo on the carinascrafts blog. She had received this lovely cat tape measure that her parents had brought back from a trip to Vietnam. What a brilliant simple idea.
I bought the tape measures from ebay. A bargain at £1 each and they are of an equal quality to others I’ve used.
I used my Planetpenny stash of cotton yarn.
I bought this pack last year and love to dip into it for my mini makes.
These took around an hour each. I crocheted the back as a disc and then the front. For the sides I crocheted into the back loops of the front disc, 3 rows of doubles, leaving a gap to push the tape end through. Then with the tape measure in place I slip stitched the back disc into the front. So not even a need to hand stitch the parts together.
This is the back.
Now maybe I’ll have a chance of finding a tape measure when I need one.
Have a lovely crafty weekend.
Love, Lucie xx
