Introducing...The Sharp Crochet Hook!


Good morning and a very happy Friday to you!  This morning I am so excited to share a new and interesting tool I have had the pleasure of experimenting with...the Sharp Crochet Hook!

This hook allows you crochet through fabric!  It has a pointer tip to go right through, no need for pre-poking holes in fabric again.  Pretty neat, right?  Think of all of the edgings, surface crochet, and other wonderful things one could create...



I was thrilled to be gifted one to try out, and I have to say, it was really neat to use.  It came with a great little book full of patterns and ideas...skirts, garments, and even little lacy shoes!

When I got mine in the mail, I took it right out of the box and found a little dress I've been wanting to add something to...perfect!



I was inspired by the cute skirts on one of the pages, aren't these two little ladies the cutest?  I dug around and found some coordinating embroidery floss...first I wanted to try and see how it went through the fabric...



Super easy!


Plus the hole is big enough for stitching, but not too big...just right.




I started by putting a little yellow at the bottom with a few single crochet stitches with five chains in between.  To the left you can see a green and orange tangle, I wasn't crazy about that green, the color didn't really stand out so I opted for the bright yellow and...super cute!  I think I'll keep going and perhaps add another layer of color to the yellow...



*Stay tuned!!!  If you'd like to get a free Sharp Hook and book of your very own, I'm going to be giving one away starting tomorrow...hooray!
