{Crash Course Crochet} Adding Texture to Your Crochet

{Crash Course Crochet} Adding Texture to Your Crochet

I work almost exclusively in single crochet. I make dolls, and that’s the stitching that makes sense to use. Sometimes it gets really boring, and I end up looking for little ways to add texture to my work without sacrificing the composition of the piece. I thought it would be nice to share some of the little and easy things that I do to add a little more pizzaz to my boring single crochet.

{Craft Show in the Know} Everybody Needs Signs

I’m completely guilty of slacking at this at my shows. My signage leaves quite a bit to be desired, and it’s time to change the lack of sign situation. In reality, all of us artists should be embracing amazing (and totally helpful) signs at our craft shows. I see poor sign participation at craft booths more than I see amazing signage. Maybe it’s one of those things that is so simple that it’s commonly overlooked? I don’t know. My signs are pretty pathetic, and I don’t really have a good excuse as to why. I just never invested the time into making/buying some signs.

Shrinking Down Our Friends, the Knotty Knuckleheads

The Knotty Knuckleheads have been shrunk down. I’ve been working on designing a smaller monster art doll, in the hopes that I could spread out my pricing for everyone to enjoy. It has definitely been a success. The crochet pattern for the smaller monster has been written down, and I can easily make more of the little guys. The slightly larger collectible monster (because that’s what these are at these prices) has a crochet pattern in my head, and now I have to get that on paper too. Another monster should be showing himself/herself sometime this week.
