MOCP Day 16 - Texture

The thing in the photo is crocheted Christmas bauble.

Bottom of it. The Beggining. In blue mercerised cotton thread (2mm crochet hook).

Red thing seen through chains is tiny air filled ballloon (2-3'' across).

I wanted my baubles to be as light as possible so I used tiny balloons as support for crocheting baubles and then to starch them and leave them to dry as blocked. In the end just remove balloon puncturing it and you're left with lacy bauble.

They are very nice and delicate. I like how it all turned out well.
