I finished this portrait of President Obama a couple of days ago. It’s the third project I had to do towards my certification to be a Crochet By Numbers (CBN) instructor. Since it was my second attempt, it only took me about 25 hours to complete.
The process of learning CBN was a little harder than I thought it would be only because I thought I could do it differently than the way Todd Paschal, its creator, was teaching it. That’s why I had to do the second and third certification patterns twice. But I’m glad I did it the way I did because now I am aware of many of the mistakes some students will probably make, and I know how to correct them. I’m really looking forward to teaching Crochet By Numbers and hope to be doing so very soon.
I still have to decide what I’m going to do with this piece. I could make a pillow or stretch it over frames to create an objet d’art I can hang on a wall in my home. What do you think I should do with it?
Just about any photo you own can be turned into a Crochet By Numbers pattern. And now you can learn this fascinating crochet technique via my online course. Check HERE for details on how you can get started creating beautiful works of fiber art.
