The Tale of the Stubborn Crocheted Bowl
Remember the floppy crocheted bowl I made? I posted about it here:
Lyn suggested I full it to make it sturdier. So I tried and no change other than being fuzzier. I checked the label on the yarn ball, but I was pretty sure I didn’t buy superwash. No, 100% wool.
So, I thought I would try boiling it. No change.
Lyn also suggested I decorate it. I tried using a thin wool, but didn’t like it. So, I used beads in little clusters around the bowl. But it was even more floppy.
The next step was to bring out the GAC 400 stiffener. I had bought it, but never used it. Why not give it a try? I used an empty mayonnaise jar for the shape, then painted on the GAC and let it dry.
When it dried it was perfectly solid and clear.
Now I had to decide what to use it for. There are a million things I could put in there, but it wasn’t too hard to decide.
My favorite treat close at hand.
