Building your page:
Using the tails of each applique, whip-stitch each piece into place!
The Clams:

Whip-stitch the clams 3 in row – use photos as guide

Only the bottom half is sewed on to the page 🙂

 

Optional – Glue/Sew or Embroider on some eyes

Sew the buttons onto the bottom half as shown in the photos.

 

This is a fun and interactive page –
Use to play “Memory Match” or “Hide & Seek”

 

Use the ‘Fishnet’ to store the playing pieces.

My playing pieces are store bought wooden buttons;
but you can use the crochet fishes from Part Two or
crochet little pearl balls for the “Hide & Seek” game 🙂
There are many possibilities!

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.

“Crochet is an art and crocheters it’s artists. Each crafted item is unique and own to its crafter”
