Day 15 NatCroMo Freeform CAL - Free pattern

The instructions were: "Taking inspiration from others". Imagine my surprise and delight it was me, who was chosen for this!! The recognition of peers is such a boost for my crafty heart! Especially the paddingcord cheat i designed was the theme for the others to play with. For me the task was slightly different, i could find inspiration in my fellow-freeformers' work. AkuaLezliHope, one of the participants had done something with a so-called love knot, also known as Solomon's knot. I had never done that before, that's what i wanted to try. Seen as a lot of people had flowers in their freeform, i wanted to create a love knot flower.


I didn't succeed in making a flower, but a starshaped doily. Oh well, this is as good as it gets:)

This time i have written down the pattern.
