My inner child who wants to play!
Hooks & yarn
Notes

My inner child wants to play. Play with color, play with yarn, play with techniques. So she is happy with the ABC of Color April FFAL at the IFFF! I have chosen the letter F. In my language I could find these colors:

  • frambozenrood - raspberry read
  • fuchsia - fuchsia
  • flamingoroze - flamingo pink
  • flessengroen - bottle green
  • frisgroen - fresh green

Techniques with a F to start with:

  • frivolité - tatting
  • frivolitéhaken - crotat (crochet tatting)
  • franje breien - knitting fringe

Another letter to play with: L - the L of lace.

  • lila - lilac
  • lavendel - lavendel
  • lavendelgrijs - lavendel grey
  • leverkleur - liver color
  • lampenzwart - lamp’s black
  • linnen - linen

I started with a piece of lace curtaining and inspiration from the book Stitch and structure. I used buttonhole stitch and knotted buttonhole stitch. For the base I used a lace window curtaining fabric (see picture).

June 23: Back to the F…. - I will try to make a bird of this now.
Added with F: fruitnetjes - fruit nets

June 30: Completing the bird. For the eyes I used beads with yarn around it and buttonhole rings - in Dutch buttonholes are festonsteken - so that is also with F……

The nest was already there. I think this one fits this bird.
