Crocheted Lace Jewelry Frames -- thank you StitchDiva!

I was so lucky to have found this great pattern at StitchDiva. It works up very quickly. The pattern is very flexible (any kind of yarn can be used). I was also able to substitute cheaper materials, and they still came out nice (if I do say so myself). I used felt paper instead of cloth, for the backdrop of the frame. And, I only used acrylic yarn (take THAT, yarn snobs!). I do have to say though, that these will look SPECTACULAR with some sparkly yarn and satin/ printed cloth backdrop.

I also changed up the attaching part. The pattern says, to staple the finished crochet thingie onto the back of the cloth-covered background. I didn't feel so good about that so I did a lace-up corset thingie. It looks crazy in the back, but it works for me. At least I won't spend sleepless nights worrying if my gifts have come undone.

That's a wrap! (Get it? Harharhahahaharhar I am SO funny.)
