Holy Bunting Batman!

Not everyone crochets. So once in a while I do a custom order for someone. Usually it is a pattern they found and want someone to crochet it for them.  This is one of them.  Isn’t it cute?  Pattern credit goes to Creeks End Crochet on Etsy.  Visit my Etsy Shop to see my complete collection.

Vintage Crochet – Gloves

crochetgloveGloves used to be a fashion staple and not just for keeping your hands warm.  Pretty much any time you left the house, a woman wore gloves.  Special occasions called for more formal gloves.  Even when I was little my mom wore dress gloves to church.

I personally love dressy gloves. I’d love to have a pair of satin elbow length gloves…I’d only need some fancy occasions to wear them!  I wish gloves would come back into style.  I fear that the glamour of every day fashion is long gone though, replaced by yoga pants and flip flops.

These crochet gloves are so simple and elegant, I think I’ll need to find the time to make some…and wear them just because I can.

What vintage fashion would you like to see return?

Until next time, stay inspired and be crafy!

Friday Feature: Shawls/Wraps

Shawls are the ideal summer accessory for every occasion from casual to formal. Just enough to keep the evening chill off but not get too warm. This gold shawl was one of my past designs and very popular for summer weddings. This design looks beautiful in a variety of colors and especially stunning in bridal white!

Versatile and comfortable, shawls are always in style.

Until next time, stay inspired and be crafy!

Making A Comeback: Spa Washcloth Sets

washclothbow

Coming in August:  Spa sets return to Ann’Re Crochet!  

Made with durable 100% cotton, these washcloth sets will quickly become a favorite.  The more you use them, the softer they get.   Pamper yourself or give them as gifts, they are great for both adults and children.  And hey, you could even use them as dishcloths if you prefer!

The washcloths aren’t too big or too thick to handle, just 8″ square.  The facial rounds can be used for cleansing, removing make-up, and more frugal than disposable pads because they are reusable.

Available starting in August in single sets and also in bulk for gift giving and showers.

Isn’t it lovely?

It’s not crochet, but this is one of my favorite vintage/historical yarnworks.  This wool sweater is from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and is ca. 1895. The mutton sleeves are just wonderful!  I would wear this today, wouldn’t you?  One day I am going to make something like it…one day.  But until then, it will be one of my favorite inspiration pieces.  If you have a favorite inspiration piece, or if you have made a project based on an inspiration piece, I’d love to hear about it!

The length on these long necklaces allows you to wear them in so many ways:  the simplicity of letting it hang, the stylish double wrap, or an elegant knot.  These can even be wrapped around your wrist for a unique bracelet.
