    Hi! Manjuragha,

    Just a few ideas-you can make table runners,table cloth and mats.You can also make a lond bag with pockets to make lists for your kitchen etc.You can make like a bolster cover or make a diwan set.That'd look nice.

    Regards,

    Asha

    re: Craft Works : Crochet Works : Crochetting Flower Garland

    Hi subha,

    If you are talking about the woolen garlands you see in khadi and all..it is actually they are looped as flowers and then collected on a thread to make them garland

    I have never tried garlands..but this is an small idea...make pompoms in small size..of ofwhite..and maroons..more of off white colours.and then loop them in a string in a pattern..and make a big pompom to make the centre...maybe it will work out as a garland..

    or you could ask your people who are coming to assist you to bring the ready made artificial jasmine garlands you get these days..they will look kind of real also.

    Dear Subha,
    I am attaching the photo. Where in I prepared a woolen thoranam to my pujaroom entrace. Likewise you can prepare one woolen malai for your function. See the make your own flower written by ashu in this thread. Likewise prepare double colour woolen flowers. Take a needle and put one woolen flower and then a small bead. The bead will not be visible but gives space between two flowers. Like wise you can do thick as per your requirement and imagination mala made by woolen.
    At your place in a craft shop woollen thread is very well available and beads also. (even in walmart).So go ahead. After preparing show in this thread. We will happy sharing your malai.
    All the best.
