Show & Tell: Crocheted Boot Cuffs and Brooches

I've been busy, busy, busy -- trying to get my inventory up for upcoming holiday shows and for my display at Art Is In Market at Laurel Park Place Mall.  Just thought I would share some photos of a few of the things I made this week.

Back in July, I shared a tutorial on making crocheted brooches that I modeled on a pattern by Erika Knight, from her wonderful book Simple Crocheting: A Complete How-to-Crochet Workshop with 20 Projects (2012). This week I made six new brooches/clips using that basic idea:


Two of these crocheted brooches/clips have literary themes.  I incorporated some really cute little book charms that I found which feature a couple of my favorite reads.




Three others I made in a more classic design.  For obvious reasons, I call them my "poofy pins".



And then, last but not least, I made one that looks both like a star and a flower.


On all of them I used a combination pin and clip back.  This makes them very versatile. They can be worn like a brooch, or clipped in your hair or onto a purse.


The other item that I would like to stock for the holidays, and started making this week ,is crocheted boot cuffs.  Here is my daughter modeling the first pair I made.  Boots are so popular this year, I thought these would be a great gift item.



So that's it -- my show and tell of this week's creations.  Time to get back to my hooks and threads. :)
