My name is CheVon Bell and I absolutely LOVE to crochet! I crochet amigurumi (which is a fancy way of saying crocheted stuffed animal), sweaters, hats, and anything else that comes to mind. I've done sewing, I've tried knitting; but for me, crochet is the way to go!
I began with knitting when I was pregnant with child number two, but found I didn't have the patience for it. Then I turned to crochet and never turned back. Now, three years later, I am working trucking right along. ^_^
Also, and by no means secondary to crochet, I have 3 lovey daughters--3, 5 and 9 years old--and a wonderfully supportive husband. ^_^
I really love Red Heart yarn for its versatility and their wide selection of colors. I had purchased the "One Square, Many Ways" booklet and came across the "Lilac One Square" project. I loved the color combinations and wanted to make the afghan. However, I never got around to making it. I find I don't have the patience for large projects (truth be told I started it, found I was doing it wrong and ripped it all out).
So I wanted to use the colors anyway, and thus the Kayla dress was created. My youngest was still crawling when I began conceptualizing this dress. I completed the body rather quickly and moved on to the skirt. Originally I designed the skirt to be full of double crochets in a very frilly manner. However, once again that lack of patience I have got the better of me and the dress sat unfinished for at least 6-9 months (I only know this because my daughter is now walking and has been for 5.5 months).
Then came the idea for a re-design and that's what you have in this dress. I really hope you like it. ^_^
