Border #17

from Around the Corner by Edie Eckman


Algodón mercerizado / Mercerized cotton


Con la excusa de hacer unos individuales estoy probando algunos bordes del libro Around the Corner. Este borde en particular, que elegí porque parecía simple, me resultó difícil. Tuve que rehacer en dos oportunidades porque al llegar a la esquina no me coincidían los puntos. No se qué hice mal, conté los puntos de la vuelta base y parece que están bien... De todos modos era sólo para probar porque también estoy incursionando de a poco en la costura y estoy contenta con el trabajo en general.


I´m making some place mats with a crochet border.

I don´t know what I did wrong, may be the number of stitches in the base round (altough I counted them and looks like the number is right), but this apparently simple pattern gave me a hard time.

Anyway, this was only a try. I´m new at sewing and I´ve used a cheap fabric because I didn´t want to mess up the ones I really like.

On the other hand, the cotton I´m using slips a lot and makes things a little bit harder.

But, in spite of everything, I´m happy: the crochet borders looks nice and I´m learning a little about sewing (baby steps)
