My Creative Space


I've been dabbling in crochet this week, trying to perfect it.

I've finished a couple of dishcloths.... already in use - 
I now understand the hype of these, they're so nice to use and great to crochet in the car on long trips.

Now I'm venturing into making these yokes for my girls summer dresses.  I've ripped back these a few times to get them right.... and now I'm happy with them, I've been auditioning fabrics

This is my first yoke, my own pattern 
(that will be why it looks a bit angular)
 but it just didn't look quite right with this fabric

This fabric is much better but the print is too big for a little body.... 
so I'm back to the drawing board on this one..... times like these make me wish I had a fabric store down the road!


But my second yoke.
( Made this by adapting this tutorial. 
Is the perfect match for this fabric.... 


Now todays mission is to cut out and complete the dress!
Wish me luck

Lil Miss is sooo lucky to have such a clever talented mummy! Love all the yokes but that third one is just gorgeous and a perfect match!!!
(I also didn't get the hype about knitted/ crochet dishcloths till I tried them, now I want more...)

Cute! Nice work on the crochet. I haven't got to one complete granny square yet (with the intention of making a cushion cover) so have a lot of work to do. Can't wait to see how the dresses turn out.

I agree with you about the fabric matching the 3rd one is perfect. I look forward to seeing the final result!

Liking the yokes! And yep, the blue looks better with the blue fabric & the creamy/white looks great with the purple. Can't wait to see the finished outfits!

The yokes are amazing, I never would have thought of making my own. I love the colour combinations you have chosen too.
