I do enjoy crafting everything from scrapbooks to home-made cards, but crochet and knitting are usually way over my head. I never used to understand why they were so popular, and I figured that crochet especially was much too complicated for me. After I found this Ribbon and Pearl Necklace Tutorial from Happy Together my mind was completely changed. This blog features a DIY version of a necklace originally featured in Elle Magazine for over $1,300! Look how professional the finished product looks:
I realized the amazing thing about crochet is that it makes your home-made crafts look like you bought them in a store. What a great way to save money!
