Sometimes we just get blown away by the skills and originality of some of the crochet articles and patterns we find. This was one of the more unusual to come across our desk this week – how to crochet your own teacup and saucer!
Of course, this is going to be purely decorative and is quite delicate, but it could be nice for a decorative item in your window, or in your best china cabinet, or even as a table centerpiece. It would look pretty set on the dinner table filled with after-dinner mints, or just with silk flowers.
You decide how you would like to use it, but if it takes your fancy, there is a video tutorial to show you exactly how to make it.
How to Crochet a Decoraive Tea Cup and Saucer
