The dress itself is from a vintage pattern I have found during hours of Pinterest surfing. But I also thought I could embellish it with crochet appliqués of some form, and so, I have made a few motifs from various Pinterest locations, mostly Irish/freeform crochet inspired. So far, I am just experimenting with stuff, and the idea is to make quite a few different motifs to choose from, and in various colours, too. Worst-case scenario, if they don't look that great on the dress, they can always be used as table centrepieces on the day, that's the way I see it!
Anyway, here are some of the motifs I have made so far:
The first two are adapted from here and here, though by a sort of happy accident, the first one didn't keep its shape. The third one was made exactly as presented here.
And here they are all put together:
Don't they just look precious? Can't wait to make some more!
Thanks for reading, folks.
Oh, and I know these are not granny squares per se, but since they are motifs that use similar stitches, I'll be cheeky and link them to Jijihook's Granny Love Challenge! ;)
