I have no real idea what made me make them this way but I suppose like many ideas it just sort of grew. I wanted to crochet more things with the thinner cotton that I refound when making the bookmarks and have fancied making some square motifs from one of my books for ages. Put the two things togther and we are half way there. All that was left was to choose some fabric to set them it. Easy. When it comes to choosing fabric I will always go for orange if it is available!
