Here is the letter A, my first tapestry crochet pattern in a good long while. My goal is to do both the upper and lower case letters in 5″ blocks. Then, with those blocks, my goal is to make cool baby blocks and floor mats for the baby. Each block will contain the upper and lower case letter along with a noun or two that start with that letter. Floor mats will be the same. But wait till you see what I’m going to do with these blocks and mats… I have a lot of ideas, so we’ll see how many I’ll be able to complete. :)
I guess this is what you’d call a CAL, as it’ll take a good long time to complete all 26 blocks and mats. So join me and see where we end up and what we can create by the end of the year.
And if you’re not interested in blocks or mats, you can also use these blocks in baby blankets, in a banner, or wherever your imagination leads you.
