New Life To Crochet | Valentina Cirasola |Designer

Girl-Pink-Green-1aWelcome to my Friday Fashion.
Crochet has picked up popularity and no longer looks like grandmother’s blanket of the ’60s or doilies of the ‘1800s. The techniques are the same with a new modern twist, in fact on Simona Barbieri’s site I saw some very pretty knitted and crocheted purses

I am into crochet again, I had abandoned it for so many years, my life was evolving and playtime was limited. Now my life is still evolving in a new direction, I am into fashion again and I have combined it with my interior design business. I started crocheting again, it is a relaxing thing to do, allows me moments to think of life issues and I like the creations, which come out of my mind without pattern, without plans and often I can’t repeat the same thing again. I can say I make one of a kind piece.

I wear scarves from autumn to the end of spring and even in cooler summer evenings. I thought it would be nice to wear something that resembles a scarf, but it really is not. I call my new creations COLLIERS. The word refers to chunky and imposing jewelry, mine are made in clusters of yarn, fabrics, beads and various items as I fancy, their function is to keep the neck warm and to embellish the clothes. These photos represent some of my work. The rest of my creations is in my Etsy store, take a look, I would appreciate it

    These are just beautiful! You’re right — we do need to look around for new uses for old crafts. Crochet has always intrigued me, and now I’m thinking of what I could make if I just got started.

      Rusha, old things are always new. People have revived this old craft and are making stunning pieces. If you look at Pinterest, you will find original crochet ideas.
