Spring is an great time to catch up on all the things you let slip during the Winter. Spring is traditionally a time of new beginnings. This is the time to finally clean up all of the clothes piled up on the floor, finally pack away the things you don't use anymore, and get out that box of old crafts you started but never finished. I've been seeing inspiration around every corner. Beautiful pastel colors and nature inspired items are in this season. I'm being drawn to any- and everything bohemian. Natural colors and flowy pieces, all with an earthy twist. I've got a long to do list and I've only begun to start on it.
The first project I am working on is a gypsy-inspired crochet bikini. I'm starting off with a simple triangle pattern for the cups and adding details in the band with a V-stitch. To add some length and even more detail, I will be adding a fringe and crocheting wooden beads into the ends. I have chosen a thin peachy/coral color for the yarn. One tip when making crochet clothing, make sure to pull the stitches tight to keep the clothing solid (without too many holes) and form fitting.
The next several projects I have lined up are quick and simple: anklets and pony-tail holders. I have a variety of wooden and glassy beads to crochet into the anklet. I am using the thinnest yarn in a tan/cream color and smallest hook that I have. The pony-tail holders will be more of a challenge since I will have to find a way to still allow the band to stretch.
With all these new Spring projects I have plans to update my shop. I will be adding some new merchandise and creating new patterns for Etsy! I am excited for Spring crafting!
