Crochet for Me
I’ve been on a weight loss journey for some time now, and I finally feel like I’m making progress….even if it’s small progress. I recently decided I was going to reward myself with a new outfit when I get there. Remember, this could be another year from now! Then I thought, “Why am I not just making myself something?” Most of us crafters give away all of our handmade items. In all the years I’ve been crocheting I think I only have one or two things I’ve made for myself. So that’s going to change. I’m not sure if I’ll use someone else’s pattern, or create my own, but I went searching for some ideas.
This skirt is my absolute favorite!!! It’s totally my style and I would make this for myself in a heartbeat! Someone once said it was a Russian pattern, but I have yet to find a pattern, or the originator. If anyone knows where I can find this PLEASE let me know! I have a friend who is Russian and I could have her translate it for me!
How about dainty? This dress is beautiful, but I might want something I can wear more often.
Or maybe something from Jennifer Hanson a.k.a. The Stitch Diva.
I could go on. There are so many amazing patterns out there! Do you make things for yourself? I’d love to hear your favorite things to make/wear.
