Eat, Sleep, Craft, Repeat

 

You may remember that a few weeks ago we released a series of prints with Natalie from written by natalie. We wanted to make one of them really special, so we combined a print with what we know best – crochet!

SO…are you ready for a simple DIY that will up your crafting game?!

The tools you need are simple: a pencil, a ruler, a craft hole puncher, white craft paper, green worsted weight yarn, and a 3mm crochet hook.

Begin by downloading the free printable from our shop, and printing it on the white craft paper, using the guidelines provided in the download instructions.

Using the ruler, mark 5cm lines around all four sides of the page. Make sure to keep a 1cm margin around all four sides, to make sure that the paper does not tear when you begin to crochet around the edges.

Once you’ve created your markings, use the craft hole puncher to create holes where you’ve marked with the pencil. Continue doing this until you’ve created holes around the entire page.

Using the hook and the green yarn, *insert the hook in the hole to draw the yarn through, making a single crochet. Chain 2, then repeat from * Continue doing this until you’ve gone around the entire paper. We chose to go around the paper for 5 rounds to create a thick border. This part is up to you.
