Finally got my yarn, so I started to crochet grannies for my blanket immediately! Well, almost :-). First I had to finish the before mentioned dress of course, the one where I crocheted the flowers for. Here is how it worked out, crochet and sewing in one dress:
And here are the few grannies I made this week for my blanket:
I have to say: I got a bit excited about the sewing from last weeks, so I think I will go on a little bit longer with it. I found some nice vintage inspired patterns and want to try them all. Try, because some of the items have things (like the zipper in a cigarette pants, for example) that I never did before. Of course I show you all the progress I make (but only if I had success with doing things like zippers or placing busks in a dress, of course, haha)! Besides the cigarette pants I want to make two dresses, a pencil skirt and a top. Hopefully my enthusiasm for sewing will stay for a while, so I finish all the before mentioned items! And for the crochet lovers: of course I will keep working on the blanket, also!
The renewed excitement about the sewing has also something to do with the blogs that featured my projects of course! This week two of my projects were featured.
