So wonderful lAdies, I recently rescued 4 rather shabby crochet shawls from the land of wonder that is my local charity shop - anyhoooo, the plan is to cut them into quarters and add to denim fabric to make some cushion covers.
Anyone got some good ideas to stop them unravelling on the cut marks - I'm thinking I could glue them but if u have a better idea - lemme know please x


LATEST project - I'm compiling a "handed down" recipes boom and so if I get you in a swap, would you be so kind to find a recipe from your childhood. type it up - if you want to decorate, then please do :

The only thing I can think of is to sew them to fabric before you cut. Sew around the crochet edges and then cut your square. Does this make sense? Maybe you could serge the edges?
