As you might have noticed, I have a shop on Dawanda, where I try to sell some of my projects. Very unsuccessful until today. I have not sold a single item I admit, the offer is quite small at the moment but I am working on it. I also need to increase publicity which is why I decided to take part in the following competition: it is called “Meine Heimat”.
My home is Franconia so I made a kindle sleeve for real patriots in the colors of Franconia. It was also my first shot at intarsia crochet. The heart turned out ok but I am not very happy with the shape of the three triangles which form the coat of arms of Franconia. Guess I need to practice a bit more on that. If someone knows how to create really sharp outlines when you are changing colors, I would be happy to listen!
You can find the offer on Dawanda here: Kindle sleeve for real Franconians.
And now to some pictures:
Here is a view of the back, with the stripes in red and white…
Here is another view of the front, with the chart I used for the pattern. It is really easy to create the color chart with Excel. Following it is a different story Seriously, I am still wondering how I could achieve perfect color changes… Or is it really just a matter of practice??? HELP!!!!!
For next week, I have something bigger, I promise. This should be one of the last sleeves I will be posting here. I should move to something more challenging!
