I’ve been wanting to get back into sharing outfit posts more regularly, so here’s a little one. I’m really pleased with this new lace top I got recently. I’ve been looking for t-shirts that have a bit of embellishment, like a floral print, polka dots, lace, etc. I have a good set of solid color tees now, and since I wear them a lot around the house but also out and about, I’ve been getting a little bored with them.
When I originally started posting outfits, one of the goals was to share outfits that included an item of clothing or accessory that I’d made, altered, or mended in some way. I made this necklace years ago and I still like it.
I wore this to my younger cousin’s baby shower. A little dressy, but also comfortable for chasing my nearly two-year-old around trying to keep him from destroying things. (Oh, toddlers.)
I love using crochet and leather together. And I also love crocheting pouches and bags, but I often forget to. I made a couple of these for my husband and myself and wound up liking them enough that I’ve decided to make more.
As far as making goes, these are pretty simple and great for using up yarn scraps and playing around with striping combinations. If you’re into tabletop rpgs these make great little dice bags, but I also imagine kiddos using them to keep little treasures they find – rocks, coins, flowers, etc. Maybe you could even use one as a coin purse.
These are pretty simple to make, I think even for a beginner crocheter, and I’ll probably be putting up a tutorial soon, though if you’d still like one but don’t want to make it, I’m planning on selling these in my upcoming online shop (I’ll be sure to post about it when it officially opens).
