So in Febuary I was contacted by my previous customer wanting me to make her a gradutaion sash for her little sister. I had to do some research because I have never made one and have no clue on how to start.
Ater going to raverly.com, pininterest, facebook, etsy, wordpress, instagram and google I didnt see any! I cant believe that I couldnt find any crochet or knitted graduation sashes!
So I went to my trusted crochet bible book and reading through it I had an idea. Why dont I try to make it using the chevron patterns.
I made a mini one and it came out like I wanted it. So after buying the yarn I started to research the deminsions of it. I found a website that sells fabric sashes for colleges, and faternities. So I basically made the measurements and went with it.
It came out a bit large since the high school graduate is a petite young lady. So I tried getting my customer to come in to get measured unfortunately she wasnt able to so I had to finish it with the original length.
This sash was a true challenge for me but I loved working on it. I made a few mistakes with this one but you live and learn right.
Working on this and trying to figure out how to shorten it was another challenge. I do love the outcome and being able to put my shop logo on it makes me feel like a real professional! I know that is silly but I finally have a tag on my products that have a nice clean cut to it.
Here is a little video of the completed sash. I cant wait to give it to the customer.
