Monday Inspiration: Thread Crochet

christeninggownThere is some crochet that you look at and you just know that a lot of time and love went into it.  This is one of them.  This beautiful christening gown and bonnet is made by Carol Booth using #30 6-cord vintage Cartier-Bresson thread and a #10 steel hook…without a pattern!  It was posted on the Doris Chan Crochet blog.  The Swarvoski crystal beads just send it over the top.   If this won second place, I can just imagine that first place was incredible.

I really enjoy thread crochet even though it is tiny intricate work.  It is very rewarding when you finish!

That is all for today. I’d love to hear what has you inspired to make something this week. Just leave a comment or even share a link below. Your inspiration could end up in a future post!

Until next time, stay inspired and be crafy!
