"Live With Sara "Can I Iron A Patch on A Crochet Projects?" | Posh Pooch Designs

"Live With Sara" 
Can I Iron A Patch on A Crochet Projects?
With Sara Sach of  Posh Pooch Designs

Can I Iron A Patch on A Crochet Projects?
I do not recommend ironing on a Patch to any crochet project
 made of  Acrylic yarn. Now having said that, 
I do know people who do this. 
The issue is not the patch, but the yarn.
Acrylic yarn can burn very easily, and it can ruin your
 project in a matter of seconds.
I would imagine that if you are using a Cotton yarn
 it would be fine.
I talked with a few of my Crochet Peeps and they said, 
they suggest hand sewing the patch on with clear thread or 
thread to match the trim of the patch.
I have never done this my self, but it sounds like a great solution.
The clear thread is not visible and it's a sturdy thread.

Kwanzaa Luminary Jar Cozie By Special Request | Posh Pooch Designs

Kwanzaa Luminary Jar Cozie 
Crochet Pattern By Special Request
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs
A Very Dear Friend asked me to make a Luminary for her
 Kwanzaa Party, after seeing the other Jar cozies that I had designed. 
The Party is at her mom's apartment, and  they are not allowed to use
 real candles. She wants to give them to her family and friends,
 as a reminder of the party and the time spent together. 
 I am so very honored that she asked me to design 
the Luminary. I wasn't sure how Kwanzaa was celebrated,
 and wanted to make sure I was respectful
 and represented  it right.
I hope I did this Beautiful Celebration justice.

A Brief Explanation:
"The celebration honors African Heritage in African-American culture
 and is observed from December 26 to January 1, 
culminating in a feast and gift giving.
Kwanzaa has seven core principles (Nguzo Saba).
 It was created by Maulana Karenga and was first celebrated in 1966–67."



I was inspired By the Kwanza Candles.
During Kwanzaa a special candle holder called a kinara is used. 
kinara holds seven candles, three red ones on the left, three green ones on
 the right, with a black candle in the center.
If you would Like to learn more about what Kwanzaa
 is Click This LINK

and Answer The Question
"Weave In Or Stitch Over The Ends?" 

See The Video On my Youtube Crochet

" To Weave, or not to Weave, 
That is the question".
And The answer is not so complicated.
It really depends on your preference.

and come back and weave them in Later.

Sometimes I will weave then in as I go, and sometimes
 I will weave then in later.
It really depends on how much time I have

 is neat and tidy.
