Crochet creates textiles using a crochet hook to interlock loops of yarn, thread, or strands of other materials. In 2019 I made some toys, cute little foods, fruits, hats, and purses utilizing crochet. I was inspired by the 100 Days of Mini Amigurumi book by Lauren Espy- A Menagerie of Stitches. Amigurumi 編みぐるみ, lit. "crocheted or knitted stuffed toy" is the Japanese craft of knitting or crocheting little, stuffed yarn creatures. You can contact me if you need help with crochet project ideas.
1970s Crochet Granny Square Vest
This is another of my crochet projects. I got inspired by retro 70s style and decided to crochet a vest. I thought, why not create something for myself to wear. I can also create some more crochet for the stop motion characters I will be creating in the future. I had a great time making these, making me feel connected to a craft. As much as I always love fine art and digital, there is something about handmade crafts that I mentioned previously in this article. Thanks to Nirvana for the inspiration and design tips.
PROCESS of the Vest making
You can watch and learn how I made some of my art by watching the Speedpaint videos and more on my Youtube channel. You can also let me know if you need to commission an artwork.
