This is beautiful! And so creative. Will you be mad if I steal the idea?

Hello there! I haven't posted on this board before, but I've done a little lurking. The stuff I've seen here is so impressive! All I have for you is a little origami, but with a pretty twist.

I made these roses for my mom out of construction paper for Mother's Day a couple years ago, but as you can see they have faded a lot.




So this time, I replaced them with something that wouldn't fade: foil tissue!

And it turned out soooooo well!



I made a silver one, too, out of aluminum foil, to replace the white one.



OMG. So pretty. There are even more photos on my blog if you'd like to see. Wink

Oh yes, and here is the website with the instructions I used. It's actually pretty easy.

That is such a cool color arrangement! If I had 1) the patience to change colors so frequently in a square and 2) the ability to finish an afghan, I'd totally do something like this!
16  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / New joining method: remove the foundation chain on: June 27, 2011 11:14:02 PM
Hi there everyone! I recently crocheted an infinity scarf as a present for a family member (using my own pattern). I had made one like this before, but I made it a little narrower, a little tighter.



Preeeeety, yes?

Unfortunately, I ran into a little snag. I had made the foundation chain really loose to accommodate for stretching. Usually it works out.

Turns out, this time it was way too loose. When I tried to whipstitch it together, it bulged funnily and just looked so messy. So what was I to do?

It hit me then that I could try to remove the foundation chain in order to join the two ends. If you'd like to learn how I did it, I put together a photo tutorial on my blog to explain it. Sorry, it's a huge pain to put together twice!

An overview:
-hold the ends of your scarf together, with the beginning of it in front, foundation chain facing up, and the end of it behind, the tops of the stitches facing up. Line up your stitches
-at the beginning edge of the scarf, insert your hook from right to left into the base of the first stitch from the left, following the foundation chain yarn
-insert the hook into the corresponding stitch at the end of the scarf
-yarn over with your joining yarn and pull it all the way through (leaving not a loop, but a single strand of yarn)
-continue across
-pull the yarn through twice at the first and final stitch of the seam
-unravel the foundation chain



It looks very apparent in the sample I did using all different colors, but it is pretty much invisible when done in one color (you can see the photos of it on my blog post). Please take a look and let me know what you think!

Thanks for reading!

Tooooo cute! My boyfriend is aiming to be a high school science teacher, so this is now officially on my list of future gifts!

I personally don't like wearing dresses with that style of back, but your dress is seriously cute. I really like how you cinched the straps in front.
