4 Projects to Celebrate Friendship with Your Sister
I’m one of the fortunate people who can say that my sister is my best friend. This becomes somewhat ironic for me because Sisters Day and Friendship Day happen on the same date in 2017, kicking this week off. Granted, not all of our growing-up years passed in sisterly bliss. I can remember some horrible arguments over nothing, but, ever since we realized we’re on the same team, we’ve been very close.
Today and every day, both of us can say that we truly honor National Sisters Day and National Friendship Day. What projects would be most beneficial for the woman I am lucky enough to call my sister? I’ve found 4 projects that I could make for my little sister/best friend.
Since she has short hair (which looks much cuter on her than it would on me), a headband would be perfect! This accessory would definitely help her as she hangs out with her 4 adorable kiddos. I’m thinking of the Scamp Bandanna by April Garwood from Interweave Crochet, Summer 2014. Not only is it both pretty and practical, we could match, since I’ve already made one for myself!
Martha’s Vineyard Tote
What woman can’t use another bag? I know she’s toting everything under the sun for both herself and the kids, so I could make her the Martha’s Vineyard Tote created by Anne Potter and found in Love of Crochet Summer 2017. Maybe I will even buy the kit that has everything I need to make this bag for a mommy on the go!
Painted Turtle Afghan
For a cool rainy day, you can’t beat a nice afghan. This item would offer multiple uses: a play-blanket for the kids, something cozy to cuddle under together, or just a coverlet for one of mommy’s rare afternoon naps. An afghan would be a great gift, especially if it has a special meaning. The Painted Turtle Afghan by designer Edie Eckman, originally published in Interweave Crochet Winter 2009 would be fun for my sister because she had a pet turtle when she was younger.
River Walk Wrap
Date night! Every woman likes to dress up once in a while, so how about a shawl as the perfect addition to any date night outfit? The River Walk Wrap a design by Sharon Falkner from Interweave Crochet, Summer 2011 would be perfect, especially if it’s worked in black or perhaps a silver metallic! It’s not too heavy, and I think I would add fringe for the perfect finishing touch to make it elegant and classy!
How about you? What would you make for your sister(s) and/or your best friend?
No matter what you decide on, make sure you take the time to let them know how much they mean to you! I love you, Courtney!
