Oh my, it has been a very long while! Things have been a little hectic around here but I have been creating plenty of fun stuff. My newest endeavor has been newsboy hats. And as usual, I just had to do them my own way. I taught myself a few new stitches and then I invented my own method for creating the brim. The first few that I tried didn't turn out so hot, but I was persistent and I finally found the formula that works for me. I'd share it but I am currently selling the hats on etsy and I'd like to keep the exact design all my own. So many people sell hats and beanies on etsy these days that I have to keep whatever edge I've got! I'm sure you understand. Alright, now to share my latest creations with whomever may be peeking in on me this time around......
newsboy in mint and chip
made to order in all sizes
solid blue newsboy, ready to ship
I've also added a few more slouchy hats to my shop with variations of the same ribbing technique I used on the newsboy hats above and a cable stitch as well. I'll be posting more of my items in my next blog. It seems no matter what I do, I can't get away from the world of crochet. I love macrame and painting and so many other crafts but I've come to find that crochet is just my niche in life and I'm perfectly okay with that! I'm constantly in search of new methods and techniques to learn and I hope I never stop learning and growing in my craft! Tomorrow I'll be sharing some lovely flower barrettes that a fellow etsy seller inspired me to create as well as the slouchy's I mentioned and my latest newsboy featuring a large rose! The newsboy is complete and in the process of being listed in my shop but my camera died just as I was uploading the images I took of it, so I'll have to wait to share with you and to make it available for purchase. Alright, that's it for my this evening. Have a wonderful night/morning and happy, happy crafting!!!!!!!!!!!
