Crocheted Nativity

What a whirlwind season it’s been. I have to admit to being sad to see it coming to a close. In this week’s final challenge, you selected Erica’s amazing crocheted nativity set as the winning project.

This is Erica’s fourth win.

Crocheted Nativity Tutorial

When I was trying to think of what I could make for the finale of So You Think You’re Crafty I went back and forth on what kind of project I wanted to do. I thought about making some kind of quilt or something but every time I thought about it I kept coming back to crochet. I feel like although I enjoy sewing and doing other crafts, crocheting is the most representative of me and of my blog.
