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!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Until next time, stay inspired and be crafy!

Monday Inspiration: Fringe

This halter is from http://www.2020ave.com/

Have you noticed that fringe is making a comeback?  They say everything old is new again and it is pretty much true.  I only wish that those low riding jeans would go away and never return.  But I digress…  Fringe is returning all sorts of things in the fashion world, and crochet and fringe go together so well!

I remember a poncho my mom crocheted for me when I was in elementary school.  I loved that poncho and my favorite part was the fringe.

It is still pretty trendy to have shawls, scarves, ponchos etc. without fringe, they may be pushed to the back of the closet soon as fringe comes front and center! What is your favorite fringed item in your wardrobe?

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!
