Here's my latest Etsy Alchemy Request. She wanted me to recreate the vintage circlets seen in the first photo but in a smaller size. Took me a while to figure out the pattern just from looking at the photo ( it's a little lacking in detail ) plus how to scale it down in size, but I managed and I'm rather proud. I'm planning on using the same pattern for a belt, a scarf or...I don't know. Any ideas??

So here is my lasted installation to my crochet (and etsy) collection. I found an old crochet baptismal dress and decided to change some it. I couldn't find buttons that matched the dress to my liking so I decided to crochet them as well...ergo, this:

So I've found another client. She is a wonderful woman from California, with 6 kids, nieces and nephews. She made an Alchemy request for 15 different children's hats: 9 knitted baby bonnets, and 6 crocheted visor hats with detachable flowers of different colors. ( She also asked for a crocheted clothing line of which I will post here soon. It's really neat.) It's been a bit tough trying to find the colors close to what she wants, but so far it's been a good experience...I'll be posting pictures up as I make them so get ready for more posts! :)

Ok. So I seem to be a little obsessed with crocheted masks. But I really can't help myself. I truly like the look. Unsurprisingly enough I went on yet another google hunt to find more crocheted mask patterns with my mind set on finding as many as I possibly can. Ergo, here is yet another
...and here is the pattern: Masquerade-Hairpin Lace Crochet Mask (Designed by Jennifer Hansen). A PDF, of course...

While scrolling down the Esty website alchemy listings, I came across someone asking for the making of a crochet"Bootleg Chanel Bag" she found on the Internet. Interestingly enough, I had stumbled upon the very same web page holding the very same pattern. The whole point to the bags development is to debase designer bags through "mimicking". Something I found rather humorous. Ergo, I made no hesitation to bid, which I won. I must mention it was the very first bid I won on the Alchemy section. The woman, or young lady who requested the bag, is such a great sport and I can't wait to send her the finished item.
One question I do have is that although the website seems very legit ( a .org instead of a .com) is the logo not copy righted? I didn't think much of it until I started making the logo. Now I'm not so sure...Still she paid me over Etsy and so I feel obligated to finish it and send it to her. All of which I will.
Here's what the bag looks like. The instructions are on the Counterfeit Crochet Project web page: How to Make a Bootleg Chanel Bag

Okay, so...I've finally designed my own pattern. Took me long enough. It started out with just the drop style earrings and kind of morphed into a choker and earring jewelry set. I also made a variant of the earrings as well, changing them drop drop style to loops. I plan on making a
variant the original choker design as well. I've got an idea in mind just have to try it out. Let me know what you think!
