This month, it was Niky’s turn to provide the Component of the Month – she sent us these awesome hare coin clasps! She makes such awesome things! And yes, as usual, I didn’t take a photo of it before I used it. I do that, I admit it.
I wanted to learn a new stitch, and thought flat chenille stitch would go perfectly with the size of this clasp. I chose size 11 and 15 Japanese seeds in coordinating colors, colors I thought would look good with the brushed silver of the coin. And then I learned flat chenille stitch.
To be honest, I’m embarrassed at how long it took me to actually figure it out. It’s a pretty easy stitch,but for some reason, I was having trouble initially in turning over to the next row. Once I got it, it went really quickly and it’s a pretty fun stitch, with quick results!
Here’s the whole bracelet, very easy to wear as well!
I have another clasp of Niky’s from last years’ CoM, and I already have beads picked out to turn it into a flat chenille stitch bracelet!
Thanks so much to Niky for the awesome clasp, and check out what everyone else made!
