Dresser trays with assorted beauty implements make wonderful decorations for any dresser, vanity or Irish Crochet project. 🙂 These were made in US20 thread and measure about 4 3/4″ inch or smaller; the squares on my dining table are 4 1/2″ in.
These free-form crochet items can include anything you’re inspired to create, like:
• Perfume Bottle
• Handheld mirror, hairbrush and comb
• French Twist Prong or Hair-comb
Place within a decorative border and net to join or sew atop a small Venetian square mat (tray) with added handles to use in a playhouse, or incorporate into the design of Irish Crochet clothing, or as decoration for a table runner.
