Country Crochet

Chanel's 2010 barn yard conceived collection had me very excited about summer crochet patterns.

I was particularly taken with the detailing on the dresses and of course the handbags!

Perhaps it is just having done the shoot for my part on Kirstie's Homemade Home (will blog on such later) but crochet seems to be everywhere I turn at the moment.

I know there is a crochet handbag I made a while ago and I think I'll go and find it and use it to make a bright beautiful new one to carry around as my summer must-have accessory!


  1. Hi Erika,
    That is a very lovely design. I agree, there seem to be a lot of modern crochet designs going around. You should definitely check out some Japanese crochet designs.
    Look forward to your post on Homemade Home! :)

  2. Creativo Surface Design is reaching out to textile/surface designers across the globe and we came across your website. We feel that your work would be a great addition to our pool of designs.

    Right now Creativo Surface Design is looking to work with freelance textile designers to design for the different apparel markets we serve. We are working at the moment on putting together the collections for next year trade shows. Just to give you an idea, we have boys, girls, juniors, women’s and men’s collections (swimwear, street wear…etc.)

    If you have something under your portfolio, that it is not older than a year, please send us JPEGs in order for us to see and determine if they are a good fit to what our customers are looking for. We are working on Spring-Summer 2011 right now.

    Just to let you know you, we keep the designer’s names and contact info strictly confidential. So NO worries. In our company we signed a confidentiality agreement so we do not disclose your name and info.

    Let me know if you are interested in this opportunity. Also, if you know of any other designers that you want to recommend please give them a hint, send us their personal e-mail address and we will keep in touch with them.

    All the best!

    Warm Regards,
    Danny Naz
