Triple Flower Sun Catcher

October 2011 Project

Please excuse the dirty window! This is the first of this type of craft that I have made. I've been playing with suncatchers lately. I'm going to keep this on for myself, but may make another soon to sell. The flowers are a little time consuming. I need to work on a better technique for wrapping the wire. <>Nicole<>

New Earrings on Etsy!

I finally started listing some of my new jewelry creations in my Etsy Store. I guess the title isn't 100% correct. A necklace was also listed! Christmas is coming up, and I'm hoping to set up a small booth at a couple of pre-Christmas craft fairs. Still haven't decided where exactly.

Cute Girls Crocheted Play Dress

Crocheted Girls Play Dress
I'm not sure why I never seem to completely finish any crochet projects. I love to start them, work diligently until 75-90% completion, and then stop and start something else. I recently started this little dress as a gift for my niece. The pattern is from a August 2002 issue of Crochet World that I picked up for $0.50 at a thrift store over the summer. I tried to find it online to share it, but was unable to. The pattern was easy to follow. I did change it just a bit. I used a larger hook and different yarn colors because that is what I had. I also added a button to the center of the "flower button". 

Crocheted Girls Play Dress
Overall the dress was easy to make and worked up in four days. I'm about 98% done with the dress. I'm hoping that writing about it will give me the motivation to finish the second strap. I have crocheted the strap, but need to make another flower button and sew it together. I would like to make a matching hat and maybe sock trims. Crochet World included a pattern for a beret that matches the dress, but I don't like it. I think that the butterfly hat that was suppose to be my next project will look cute with this dress. I haven't started looking for a pattern for sock edgings. I'll have to get searching!
