This would make a great nightlight.Crochet rug with light rope Made by BautaWitch - Free pattern! I have an unused light rope, might have to do this now. glad there is finally one with a tutorial and not just a photo of the finished product
The easy way to put on names, mottos, etc: Chain stitch embroidery over plain knitting, but could be done over crochet as well. The original link no longer exists for this, so I can't credit anyone at this point.
