~~Inspire Me~~

For those that don't know me I am always coming across so many things that inspire me to try something new once in awhile. Or I find something very pretty that I so like and don't have a pattern but, would like to do it or make it into my own style. If you know me I don't follow to much patterns I do a lot of free style or winging it if that is what you want to call it. I loved this pretty crochet tank top that I seen on GOLD's blog that she made for herself it's so cute. I used that as a guide to inspire me to do something like that. So I went for it and did Nellie a pretty pink tank top. So wanted to show it off. Since I took a little brake from crocheting for the purses for the swap on Swap Swap Gals so I could do this tank top real quick. Love how it came out it fits Nellie oh so right she loves it and I totally love it myself. So cute. Can't wait to get started on another tank to for now Nesa but, in a different style of course. Have a idea in my head so now have to get it down on to my hook.

So enough about me talking about it let me show you all.

Front, I know it looks more like a dress I think I went overboard on those shell stitches lol but, I did want it to be long.

Aint it oh so cute. I know that Gold didn't think she inspire me but, Gold you did. I like to see a lot of what everyone else is doing it keeps me on my toes. Plus this also helps me to get away from crocheting purses lol. :)

Now ok with this pretty sky blue hair rap.

Didn't take long at all to finish this.

There you have it a quick hair rap project and a inspire me tank top project. :)

Oh also was wondering if there is any of my blogger friends that live in Fort Wayne, Indiana or around Fort Wayne. I ask because I will be going there to visit family and to see how I like it and if I like it may consider moving there so if there is any of my blogger friends around there maybe we can meet up somewhere. :)

I love that hair wrap! What a pretty color! Well, I live in Indiana (near Indianapolis. Not really close to Ft. Wayne, but if you plan to head through Indy we might cross paths!

The Tank Top came out great and pink looks so good on her. Thanks for the lovely compliment on my dress.

Laurah said...

Cute tank top! The pink looks sweet of her. It'll be perfect for all the nice sunny summer weather coming up. That's amazing that you worked it up without a pattern. I'm still a little shaky on wearables. Can't wait to see the next tank top!

Laura said...

That tank top is beautiful! I'm always amazed at how fast you crochet, and how you just whip stuff up without a pattern! I'm with Laurah - I'm not too good at making wearables yet, either. : (

P.S. The hair wrap looks great too!
