Monthly Handmade Style Guide

It is almost summer and the weather has been beautiful. Out comes the shorts, t-shirts and flip flops; but we want cuter than just shorts and T-shirts; right?!

We want cute

Crochet is REALLY hot right now. I know what you’re thinking: my grandmother crochets! Well, this is not your grammy’s crochet. The designs out there are cute, hippie, bohemian and cooling in this hot weather. Plus, handmade crocheted clothing is unique and one of a kind.

The modem art of true crochet as we know it today was developed during the 16th century. It became known as ‘crochet lace’ in France and ‘chain lace’ in England. It truly has come a long way in terms of style; who would ever have thought we would be wearing it, and rocking it on places like the runway, the beach, and more?
