Unique Ideas for Crochet Projects



When my daughter was born, I remember someone sending a little pink ceramic bootie with a flower. With that memory in mind, I thought it would be fun to stiffen the crochet hightop so it could hold flowers. I used a stiffening product called Smooth On 327. I purchased it after watching it used on a segment of Martha Stewart. The flowers are held in place with some flower foam that can be purchased from your local craft store.

I also stiffened a doily in to a basket shape. I can see many different ways to use the basket. Someone may be doing a wedding with a budget. This would be a great way to add an elegant personal touch. A liner could be added to the basket with some moss and flowers for a unique floral arrangement. You could also do a candy basket or bath accessory basket.

  5. This is a great idea. I recieved a blue ceramic boot when my son was born and I kept it. I was able to give it to his wife when his first son was born.
