I am Bunny Rose and I am now a contributor to the Apple Blossoms Dreams Blog.
I came from Brazil via the lovely Pri found here, but now I live with Astri in the USA.
I am so excited about writing posts during this busy time for Astri.
(We'll still be hearing from her, occasionally, as well.)
I have a lot of ideas (mostly crochet ideas) that I would like to share with you,
but for my very first post (by myself),
I would like to share a few clothing items I have been crocheting.
A dress, a skirt, and some boots that match the vest I made from this post.
I must apologize for the lighting in these photos.
You see, I need Astri's help with the photographs and since she has returned to work,
the natural light is not available when she arrives home in the evening.
In any case, here are some close-ups:
this is the basic dress.
Perhaps it looks better on:
The nice thing about crocheting items for oneself is that there's no guessing on size. :-)
It's a good fit, huh?
The dress can be worn alone, or with the vest or the skirt or both!
These are the boots:
They have been protecting my feet from my first cold Utah winter.
(It's not so cold in Brazil.)
Here is the skirt:
A rose for my hair:
(This actually doubles as a bracelet,
as my ears and arms are approximately the same circumference, hehe.)
And the vest from the previous post:
It can be worn buttoned in the back or front.
I used Astri's Granny Rose pattern for this.
I have had fun making and wearing these items.
What do you think?
Do you like them?
Astri told me that I can start using her leftover yarn scraps from her other projects,
so I am looking forward to seeing what I can come up with...
I'm thinking of a blanket with matching pillow and maybe a scarf...
What would you make?
I would love to hear your ideas.
Thank you for visiting!
I hope to connect with you soon. :-)
