Cherry Blossom (Sakura) | Preview
|March 8, 2013||Filled under Creations, Writing a book|
After educational reading over 1000 pages and watching 8 hours of teaching video last week (more details later), I decided to spoil myself and so enjoined working on some new projects before back to working on my book ;o)
Let me introduce the Cherry Blossom Crocheted Tank Top (which can be easily turned into dress for little ones). This top made in pretty simple basic crochet pattern with 4 ruffle-panels (two each in front and back). My inspiration for this top was that gradient ribbon I’ve noticed in our local Jo-Ann craft store, and I really glad with this delicate and lovely touch, which reminds such pretty blossom petals. Can’t wait for cherry blossom just in a few months to make a modeling and show you this top on model ;) This sample top is made to fit my 11 years old daughter and just about 2 inches longer than her waist. But as I mentioned above, with shorter bodice and longer skirt this top will magically transformed into dress or halter top/tunic. Not to mention that this top can be turned into any theme – tropical if made with bright color and contrasting ribbons, sea theme, black/white, cotton candy, strawberry shortcake or parfait, poppy, daisy, forget-me-knot, ladybug or bees … well, whatever you can think of!
As last, but not least… when ;o) This design is a part of my ruffle collection for the book, but I consider to make it available in a month or so. But only this one, OK? The rest of collection is still under “secret projects”.
BTW, which name do you like better for this design: Cherry Blossom or Sakura? For the book one-word names work better, but Cherry blossom sounds more pleasant for my ears… not-sure-why. How about you?
A wonderful weekend everyone!!
