Yay!! For one panicky moment, I thought I had forgotten how to crochet. So glad it all came back. Sunbonnets are made and stitched together.
I made this leaf which I am going to use for the hatband. Now I have to make the flowers.
I have missed crocheting. A lot!! So I spent about 30 minutes yesterday looking at photos of crochet stuff I have saved on my hard drive. These are the ones I wish I could reach out and touch.
Granny Square Handbag
Stunning… takes my breath away.
And another handbag. This one felted. Wow!! I love this one too.
Don’t have the link to it, unfortunately.
Lucy, over at Attic24, made this shawl. Gorgeous. I WANT ONE!! (Crystal at Beadhappilyeverafter was making one. Wonder if she finished hers.)
I do believe this version is what got the crochet hooks a-hookin’. I like the more colorful versions best.
I like the flowers in this one too. (no link)
I am totally smitten by this little pincushion. Saw it on Crystal’s blog.
Here it is on Etsy. Going to make one. I guess it will be OK. Doubt anyone can stake claim to the basic Granny Square as their own creation.
I love this ripple stitch pillow. A few years ago, I bought several crochet books on the ripple stitch. All different kinds. I would love to make this one day.
I think I first saw this on Lucy’s site. Let me go check.
Yep… 3 years ago. Time sure does fly.
Can’t remember where I saw this. Isn’t it just adorable? Would brighten up any room. Anyone know what crochet stitch this is? I have some old clocks I got dirt cheap at the thrift store. I could do this.
Crochet Hexagon Afghan
Isn’t this pretty? So colorful. I would make it larger, wider. And not cut off the bottom hexies. I would let the full hexie extend and go with the odd shape. Or use white yarn where the half hexies are cut off.
No link. I just save photos of stuff I like.
Crochet Tissue Box Covers
OK, OK, don’t laugh. But I love these. With tissue boxes now gone all super ultra high fashion, no one probably puts them in covers any longer. But I still do. I may have the links to these stored in my Bookmarks. Let me see if I can find them.
Found one. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/grannys-tissue-box-cover
Thanks for coming along with me on my Crochet Eye Candy tour. What fun!!
Now I remember why I loved you so much.
Donna Wanna Crochet
Go here to make your own sunbonnet potholder. I didn’t do all the bells and whistles. Just simple and easy after making the sunbonnet.
