One of our favourite parts about coming out with new tutorials on the blog is when we get to explore new techniques and learning what we can do with different materials! If you’ve been following what we do on Instagram, you’ll notice that crochet is definitely one of our favourite techniques to work with. I have been exploring what are the possible techniques I can combine to create new tutorials, which gave me the inspiration for this tutorial! While leathercrafting often gives a more edgy look, I thought it’d be nice to complement it with a delicate technique like crochet for this coaster tutorial.
