Time flies and it is already Winter season for the North Hemisphere. We just came back from a vacation in Japan and have had a wonderful time there. We were there during the late fall, the color of the fall made up by the maple trees and ginkgo trees in Japan is remarkably beautiful (you may view my photo in Facebook Page and Instagram, just in case you are not following me in my social network yet). Along the way, we picked up many fall leaves (especially the maple leaves and ginkgo leaves), they are jewels to us who live in tropical climate with no fall season. Perhaps you will see me craft on this collected fall leaf.
Days before our departure to Japan, I designed and crochet this Japanese Maple Leaf. Knowing that I will be late and out of season in sharing this crochet pattern. However, I still hope that you will pin this beautiful Japanese Maple Leaf crochet pattern into your to-do list and make it in future. Earlier on, I have another fall leaf crochet pattern that you might be interested to crochet them to make up a set.
Besides crochet this Japanese Maple Leaf as Fall Decorations, I find that the size of 3.5″ x 4.25″ is perfect to use as drink coasters too. Along with that, I am thinking to embellish the Japanese Maple leaf on a straw bag or may be the tote bag I have just made. I will show it to you when I have it done. Likewise, you can also chain them up like those I did to the Fall Leaf and turn them into a charm for your keys, purses, or for anything you can think of.
This Japanese Maple Leaf crochet pattern is made from raffia yarn, Raffia With Passion. This eco-friendly raffia yarn is made from natural plant fiber, it is able to stand warm heating from iron. The crochet pieces make from this raffia yarn is smooth to touch and will not scrape your hands. Another favorable factor about this yarn is that it is odourless, no funny smell at all from your finished craft. Utmost, what makes me really happy with this yarn is that it creates beautiful crochet stitches that will not pill and rub into little balls after a while.
