kitty: could this be the next fake craft item people knock off?

Somehow I think I could save myself $66.00 and make a Prada knock off brooche, what do you think? I screen captured the pictures on Yoox since I just couldn't believe that granny squares have become the hip accessory for this fall. According to the descriptions, the originals are made with cotton on a metal pin back. It really might be something fun to make!


  1. I'm glad you posted a photo because without it no one would ever believe that Prada was producing $66 granny square pins.
    The unfortunate thing about them is that to me they look like they are mounted on cardboard. I'd have at least backed them with black felt or velvet so that they were prettier where the holes showed the backing.

  2. Well first of all for you to make one, you would have to remember where you put the crochet hooks. And I think you might be able to get away with not crocheting one if you finally braved the stairs to the basement. Rumor has it that there might be some granny squares there. Or I could just crochet one for you.

  3. Oooohhhh, I'll definitely be linking back to this post! How... amazing[?]. :)
