2nd Prize In Crochet Competition!

26 Comments

Remember this mystery WIP from last week that I entered into a competition?

crochet clock WIP

Well I won second prize!

For those of you who were intrigued as to what it might be (Caren), I can now reveal that is is a….

…..CLOCK!

Based on a design by Matt, I made it much simpler as my clock hands were too large to include many flowers which would obstruct the movement.

I crocheted the butterfly instead of using a wooden one and used a wire tie to create the antennae. I also glued on felt numerals instead of wooden ones.

Various sizes of brightly coloured flowers adorn the perimeter.

The centre of each flower features a different button from my stash.

Eight little ladybird buttons mark the hour.

Some of the ladybirds are peeking out from amongst the flowers!

The best part for me is the rainbow – I just love all those bright colours!

The plywood we had lying about was too thick for the clock movement so I used some mounting card which was substantial enough for the job.

And here’s my prize….
