Hello everyone

Elenka by Inna Aleksandrova

This dress is adorable with its ribbon detail and an empire waist. It has been made by many so there are lots of examples on this Ravelry download. The dress featured here was taken by MissusVonkysmeed.

Angel Wings Pinafore by Maxine Gonser

This little dress is so cute! I think it is my favorite being worn over a cape sleeve under shirt and a tulle skirt. Also a download from Ravelry, this dress photo is by GraceFaithHope. And although the pattern is for 3 month it can be altered to fit an older girl.

Beehive Baby Sport – I Heart My Dress (crochet) from Patons

This lovely dress is a free download from Patons. You have to sign up but it’s worth it too see the variety of free patterns they offer. There are little heart pockets and a matching beret. If done in more springlike colors this dress could be very cute for Easter.

This is the dress that I am considering making myself. I think it is beautiful and I love the shell pattern. There are some other nice  patterns on this site make sure you have a look around while your there.

I have already featured this dress once, however I thought it really needed to be in this list. Lovely is only one of the words I could use to describe this dress. It is one of my all time favorites.

Crochet Ideas for Valentines Day

I hope you all have a great Holiday! We have been busy busy busy and now with Christmas behind me I have already started thinking about what projects I want to do for Valentines Day. I have decided to make hair bows in the shape of hearts for the little girls in my daughters daycare class and bow ties for the boys.

But before I begin those I have to share with you guys this incredible lady on YouTube. Her handle is annaphelps33 and she has some really interesting posts about dress making. I have a 4-year-old so this is right up my ally.

But if your just interested in dress making you can still learn some basic structure from her videos. The video that I am sharing shows the dresses that she has made and gives some pointers on how to make them.

Check out her channel on YouTube for some more detailed tutorials.

I am really enjoying these videos. I am trying to make my daughter a dress she can wear on Valentines day. Instead of a flower I will put a heart detail.

Happy New Year! and Happy crocheting!
