This a crocheted recipe card holder to put on the fridge or other metallic place. I made this for a dear lady who is the mother of a friend of ours and makes us kringles several times a year. They are delicious, and I have been unable to duplicate her recipe.
I got my inspiration for the base from this teapot coaster.
I just used the coaster pattern, but it is meant to be part of a square for an afghan. The directions can be found at this forum,
but I'll reprint the coaster directions here for simplicity.
Sorry, but the lady who developed the pattern decided she did not want me to reprint the pattern after all, but link to it on her forum, so you can find the pattern HERE. I am nothing if not cooperative.
The pattern is
12” Crochet Square
And Teapot Coasters

This is how I made the rest of it:
I took apart a spring type clothespin and painted the wood part with acrylic paint. - I used the color linen.
Then I wrote RECIPES on the front section and drew a little flower with a paint pen.
I threaded the metal spring into the teapot coaster and then reassembled the clothespin, with a wooden section on each side.
I glued a small magnet to the back with tacky glue.
