Faux Tapestry Crochet Cuff


 
 


Well, I cannot tell you how tempted I was whole summer to try tapestry crochet! The internet was (and it still is!) swarming with gorgeous patterns and with my overburdened schedule I didn't dare think of undertaking a new project.

However, I thought I might twist things around and make a faux tapestry crochet. I had this cuff ready to be flowered with my crochet flowers but instead I decided to cross-stitch a rose. The closest to tapestry crochet I could allow myself to get for the time being.

 

I love how it turned out and I believe I will indulge in more projects like this one. Cross-stitch is close to my heart because that's how I entered the craft world - cross-stitching a bunny gobelin at the age of 7 or 8.

Have you tried tapestry crochet? Do you like it? On my pinterest page I have pinned several bag projects for future crafting if you like to check them out.

Hi Julie! Thank you on the lovely comment. I was surprised at how fast I stitched it. It certainly opened up the gate for more such projects :)

Maya, its gorgeous and I have never seen anything like this before. When I saw the thumbnail I thought you had done tapestry weaving or embroidery. This is indeed such and ingenious way to do it

It turned out really beautiful! I wish I could wear cuffs like these but my wrists are too thin. Instead, I would apply the motif on a bag or box cover. Never tried tapestry crochet before! :-)

And much easier to tell you the truth Divya :)
I only wish I had enough free time to extend these kind of projects...

Thank you Alhana. If you ask me, cuffs make thin wrists more elegant and bring up air of sofistication. Applying the motif on a wicker chair has been whirling in my mind since I first saw the idea on the internet, but putting it on a bag would also be fantastic!
