What’s Coming in the Crochet Spot Store?By Rachel Choi – 8 Comments
This month I’ve been super busy making patterns, patterns, and did I mention patterns? So far I have a few that are almost ready to be tested. But they all need some finishing touches first. Here is a snippet of what’s to come in the store. Sorry there’s no photos, they aren’t as appealing when there’s just pieces of things laying around on my desk, hehe.
OOOh, this one is cute! My favorite part is his feet. Then don’t have toes, but they’re perfectly rounded with a nice foot shape and ankles. I enjoy making them walk around on my desk even though they aren’t connected to the body yet. That’s how much I like them (not that I have an alien foot fetish or anything)!
A nice lady asked me to make a pattern for this a while ago and I just never got around to doing it until now. She wanted to use it for her daughter’s wedding reception so that people can drop cards into it. I thought that was a great idea!
This one is fun if you like felting. I first designed it to be extra big so that when it felted it would shrink to be the perfect size. But after crocheting it, it was already a great size for a bag! I contemplated felting it or leaving it as is, but I felted it anyway. It made a very cute small purse that I really love! The moral of the story is that you can choose to felt or not to felt and it will still look great.
I love Tunisian stitches, especially when it’s done in 3 colors! The colors just weave together very nicely. This purse is larger than the felted purse so it’s better for carrying around the essentials plus some.
I always wanted a shawl that I could wear every day and also dress up for special occasions. So I designed this shawl just for that. It’s made with size 10 thread so that it drapes very nicely and is light enough so that it can be worn when the weather is warm or when it is cold.
You have to love ruffles to want to make this shrug because it has very full ruffles on it! There is a pretty wavy texture to the body of the shrug and then the bold ruffles surrounding it.
I thought it would be fun to crochet a very, very tiny bunny. It stands about 1 1/2 inches tall. It’s made with size 10 rainbow thread and with a bunny this tiny it makes it look like it’s colorfully striped!
This is a sweater that I started but have no clue how to finish. We’ll see where my crochet hook takes me. But I have to tell you that it’s super soft because I used boucle yarn, (one of the most petted yarns in the stash).
I started this round pillow and decided to put a cute animal face on it. I mean kids do like animals right? I’m thinking a teddy bear or maybe a doggy…hmm. I’ll have to think about it more.
As you can see, I’ve been busy this month, but still have yet to finish any of these for the store. Darn me and my impulse to start new things before finishing the previous. Anyway, I just wanted to share what I’ve been up to!
Let me know if you have more ideas for patterns!
