crocheting cards...

I co-sponsor the crochet club at our local school.    Each year we teach the kids crochet basics before starting on projects.  Right now we are working on Christmas ornaments for a tree in our town square.   Each year, 50 trees are decorated by local establishments and it is first come, first serve.  I applied the first day they announced it was open and we got a tree!

Anyway, our students are all new to crochet so we had to keep things really simple.  We are making things with chain and single crochet.

One of the things we did was to do a simple crocheted edge on Christmas cards.  These are some I did with the back of the card because that part was going to be trashed.





So simple that even a brand new crocheter can do them.   Just single crochet and chain stitches.
 I'm using these as gift tags on the French Market Soup mix I give out each year.  

I'm going to do a post later showing the tree that our club decorated.  It should be pretty!

Gosh darn it, wish I was there with you to help. Sounds like fun. A great way to recycle ... the tags are so cute. What do you punch the holes with? Hugs, Tammy
