It's been very hot and humid lately so it makes one think of Christmas in July!!
Here's something to bring in a breath of cooler air.....
a Christmas tree wall hanging!!
This design has battery operated light strings woven thru it. It is a filet crochet piece worked in Aunt Lydia's size 10 crochet cotton over a double crochet piece worked in Red Heart Super Saver. The one light string on a silver wire is woven thru the two pieces to hold them together and put the lights in the tree area. The second one is teeny lights on a green cord and the little bulbs push thru the back. The front is sewn to the backing with sewing thread and the green cord from the light string where the tiny bulbs are pushed thru the snowflake areas are sewn over with sewing thread to hold the lights in place to keep them from pushing back thru. It hangs on a curtain rod with a crocheted hanger with tassels on the ends. The battery packs are held in place in a pocket on the back of the piece. If you are interested in this pattern it is available in my Etsy, Craftsy and Ravelry stores. Check it out under the links above. Keep cool!!
