It’s time to kick off Day 2 of the 2017 “Make it for Me” projects! You’ve survived the holidays and now It’s Time for You! For the entire month of January, I will bring you FREE patterns from amazing designers in the crochet industry. One of the great parts of “Make it for Me” is the designer will tell you exactly what that project means to him/her and why it is considered perfect for you too! Take a few minutes to check it out and decide if this crochet pattern is the one that you’ll dedicate to make for yourself. If this is your first time here, you can find out the details about how “Make it for Me” works HERE.
What a wonderful project from Oombawaka Designs! Here’s what Rhondda had to say about her project and why she chose it. “When Kathy asked me to participate in this year’s “Make It For Me Project” I had a specific project in mind. I realize this project will not be everyone’s ‘cup-of-tea’ especially with audiobooks and ereaders everywhere but I suspect there are still a few paperback book fans out there!
My Nana loved reading romance novels and she often took them with her in her purse when she had appointments so she would have something to read while she waited. She was always uncomfortable when people who were sitting around her knew what she was reading, especially when the cover art was so “trashy” (her words not mine! although sometimes those covers can be a tad explicit!).
Nana would sew fabric book covers to cloth her paperback books and to protect herself from any possible ‘scandal’ her ‘trashy’ books might cause. I have now created a crochet version for me to use on my ‘not so waiting-room appropriate books’ (yes I also enjoy a good romance novel, although my genre is paranormal romance… I suspect my Nana would have fainted in shock if she’d seen the covers on some of my favorite novels!). My “Make if For Me Project” is an Old Fashioned Paperback Book Cover. With these simple to crochet covers, I hope you can now enjoy some ‘scandal’ free reading too.”
