My entire life i have been creative. I flittered from different styles of art and music to crafting. My mother was crafty as i grew up and taught me many different craft projects, from crocheting to beading to cross stitch. I didnt learn much beyond the basic stitches until pregnant with my third son. I picked up looming and was hooked on yarn. With looming i felt limited, eventually i went back to crochet. And realized i had been doing it wrong all along! I learned the basic stitches, then went for the advanced stitches and within a year i was easily working through expert level patterns.
I prefer to add fun stitches in odd places to make a pattern fun. I like them to be hearty thick and warm for the winters up here in Alaska. I like my kids items to be classical with a touch of something new.
I have four boys, while i love designing things for girls and am very feminine myself. Ive found a distinct lack of cute boy things. I love coming up with fun things for my boys. Its getting those things into patterns that is hard!
I hope you enjoy my designs. Im just starting getting them all to paper. I know i love writing them!
This lovely lacy set was inspired by some photos of real vintage bloomers. I loved the way the edges of the bloomers would peek out from under a girls skirt. And they themselves were often lacy too!
So i set out to make a cute crochet version.
My lacy bloomers are made with a sweet and simple shell stitch, edged with rows of ruffles and tied at the waist and leg with ribbon for bows.
The turban hat was a fun idea to work with the bloomers. It made me think of a lady in her dressing gown and what she may have worn in the bath. It has inverted braids running horizontally and is tied closed with a gem. While the hat and bloomers look adorable together, they can also be worn seperately.
