Handmade Rakshabandhan - 🌼 my 2022 makes revisited
Q: What is Rakhi?
It is a symbol of love and affection between siblings. It's a promise to love, protect and cherish one's sibling 🌼
Every year, SaiASmi - Dreamz in Yarn, gives me a chance to play mid-year 'Santa' - to deliver the love of a sibling to their loved ones. Every rakhi is selected, or designed as the per customer requirements.
Wondering how to make one of this... head over to the my blog linked below OR click on the adjoining picture.
This year, in addition to making the handmade limited Rakhis, I opened myself up to making customized gifts for the occasion. Some were #saiasmidreamzinyarn favourites and some completely new, designed by yours truly. I will be adding the links to the #newpatterns and where they can be found soon.
There were the multicolored pumpkin key chains and the travel Tic-Tac-Toe game. The Pumpkin keychain is my version of pattern by Cheryl Bennett from Crochet365knittoo
The pattern to my version of Tic-Tac-Toe is FREE on my blog and Ad-Free Pdf can be purchased on Ravelry or Lovecrafts.
Here comes a sneak peek at the new patterns which were a part of Rakhi 2022!!
