"custom canvas (using stickers to create background and then spray painting it before removing stickers) awesome, cheap and lovely. I could modify this technique for the kids." This is actually good idea to give as a gift :-)
Today’s ‘crochet in the home’ pic is a lovely free pattern for a octagonal Star Crochet Floor Rug. Chunky Doily Rug - Free Crochet Pattern over at Craft Foxes.I’d love to make a MASSIVE one of these (like 200 cm wide or more).
