Step 1: Preparation & Supplies
About a half yard of fabric, I like velvet best, but wool or fake fur or really anything works. Best results if the fabric is about the same weight as the crocheted part.
Thread to match
Crochet hook of appropriate size to the yarn
Sewing needle and or machine (can be done into rely by hand, the machine is just quicker).
Cloth (sewing type) measuring tape
Step 2: Measure And Get Started
Start crocheting (or knitting) to make a rectangle about three inches wider than your hand is long, including an inch of your wrist, in this case about 12 inches, and twice as long as you want it. I will do a simple fan and post pattern, but any stitches will work, even granny squares.
