Crochet & Fabric

Fiber arts such as Crochet and Knitting are most often thought of as winter time activities, but there are tons of amazing summer style patterns out there.  Most warm weather patterns use a light weight yarn, which requires a smaller hook; resulting in a lot more time to make the finished item.  But don't worry because you CAN create some awesome crochet things AND save time!

There's no limit to what you create with crochet.  This includes beautiful garments and accessories which combine crocheting and sewing with fabric.  (Note: This article contains free patterns)

Crochet can look really exquisite as the highlight of a garment.  Think of a dress that uses crochet as the bodice and flows into a beautiful fabric drape!

So many ideas!

I've seen crochet added to pockets of jeans, shorts, and jackets.  As borders or to add length to all kinds of skirts and tops. I've also seen crochet edgings used on home decor such as curtains, pillow cases, edges of blankets and quilts, tablecloths and pillows. 

If you can think it, you can make it!
