Crochet Fashion Embellishments
Here's another great crochet tip!
Everyone usually has at least one thing in common, and that's the clothes we have tucked away in the back of the closet. We just know we will be able to wear those again someday. Well, that day is here! You probably have at least one article of clothing perfect for embellishing, enabling you to jump into the current fashion trend. There are crochet sightings in department stores, mail-order clothing and in fashion magazines. Crochet has become a desired adornment worn by many celebrities.
Create your own fashion sensation while bringing back to life a garment you bought long ago. You can add your own special touches by crocheting flowers, butterflies, fans, baskets, adding buttons and trims, whatever takes your fancy. You can often borrow pieces from several different patterns to make up a wide range of appliqués, or shop for crocheted pieces at antique stores or garage sales.
A word of caution, though. This becomes addictive! After you debut your first creation, the praise and compliments will send you digging into the closet for more!
