Only took 2 years…

Sometimes projects just dont go well. In this case… its taken 2 years. Yikes! I bought this “E” from goodwill for maybe 2 bucks almost TWO years ago! It started off as a badly colored gold color so i decided to spray paint it purple and go from there. One of the problems with this one was it was broken in a few places. Both the top and the bottom have huge cracks and i kept filling them with glue but since they were hollow, the glue would settle through the bottom of the whole thing. So eventually i gave up and forgot about it. Now, this is for my sweet sister, Erin. Shes the one who taught me to crochet over here. Then i had a beyond brilliant idea… not only will using yarn hold the E together, it will also be a crocheter’s dream! (is that how to spell corcheter?! is that even a word?)

So voila! It actually took a lot more yarn than i expected and it was also more difficult to wrap than i expected. All of the straight sections were pie. But all of those edges and corners… two words: glue gun. I also tried to wrap them “pretty” instead of looking like i was intoxicated while i did it… or without it looking like it has a grey cast on.

Oh, and see that little grey ball of yarn? That is all thats left! I’d used it for one or two small projects but most of it is wrapped on that there “E”!

Heres a bit more detail on the edges for ya…

I thought about adding a little crochet flower or some other decor like that but… i like simplicity. I definitely tend to overcomplicate things.

Have any projects that have been sitting around for 2 years? Get on that!

Hope you like it, Erin!!
