If your linen closet isn't already bursting with crocheted lovelies, now is a great time to stitch a few new things for your table.
You can do all different kinds of things with beads and wire, so I'm sure nobody will be surprised to see me posting about how you can crochet with these items. However, this technique might not be quite what you'd expect; it's a little different than others I've seen.
I developed this technique because I thought it would be an interesting way to make rigid beaded shapes that don't need starching or ironing. I've been using it to make appliques and motifs; there are many other possibilities. It would also be a fantastic technique to use for making ornaments and things like that. I had originally envisioned using it to make jewelry too, although I keep getting sidetracked and have yet to actually finish a jewelry project using the technique.
