I am excited to share with you my latest pattern, the Boss Babe wall hanging. So who is a Boss Babe? A person who is bold, confident, in charge of their own life; someone who is unapologetic and not shy to express their authenticity. Previously, this was phrase which was strictly reserved for women, but we do not gatekeep. Anyone can be a Boss Babe no matter how they identify.
Recently my Instagram account was hacked and unfortunately I was not able to recover it. It was a setback as you can imagine, but I have now restarted another account from scratch. As I was designing this piece, I was reminded that I am a Boss Babe that this was just a stumbling block; I had done it before and I can do it again. This piece which is now hanging on a wall in my craft room has kept me motivated and inspired as I rebuild my Instagram account. This modern wall hanging is empowering in its message and will brighten up your room as a reminder to take up your space in this world as a Boss Babe.
Like many of my wall hangings, I used Loops and Threads Impeccable in colours Black [MC] & White [CC]. It’s a great affordable acrylic yarn, with many colour options that’s available at my local Michael’s. Any worsted Category 4 yarn that is stiff is perfect for wall hangings as it can hold its shape on the wall. Choose two bold contrasting colours that speak to your space and brand and give this project a go.
The pattern includes written instructions, photos, a video tutorial and a colorwork chart.
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner / Intermediate.
Tapestry crochet is done using the basic single crochet stitch, and a technique of holding 2 strands of yarn. The tutorial below will walk you through all the basics while you make a little tree sampler! If this is your first time trying tapestry crochet, I highly recommend making the tree sampler first. This will give you some practice with holding both strands of yarn and getting your tension right before starting a large project.
