So lately, I just cant seem to get into my typical jewelry making mode. I've been spending so much time with my yarn and crochet hooks. I guess because I can pretty much take them anywhere with me and, it is very soothing.
I found this very cute Strawberry pattern written by Julia Kelly on her blog. The pattern was super easy and fun. I did alter it just a wee bit though. The pattern calls for a size G hook for the strawberry and a F hook for the leaves. I used an F hook for both, and I was just a little too lazy for the intricate details of the seeds. If you have the time for the seeds, I say "Go For It", your strawberry will look cuter and more realistic.
I decided to create a bowl to put the berries in, so if you are interested, here is that pattern.
