Featured Member Crochet: May 5

Hello Again from Starting Chain! We hope that everyone got to crochet some during this beautiful weekend. In our Featured Member Crochet we love to celebrate and praise the fine work done by our readers. We inspire, and encourage, each other to try new things with crochet. It’s always nice to see what others have finished. We especially love hearing about crochet that is made for family members and for charity.

Today we’re featuring some little spring or summer dresses for babies or little girls…plus one Christening Dress. They all are beautiful.

Thanks go to Lori, Magali and Debbie for sharing them with us.

From Lori Ash: “The completed Sailor set…for my granddaughter… Pattern available here: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/110767303/instant-download-crochet-sailor-girl?ref=shop_home_active_17

Lori had earlier posted a photo of just the dress and we loved it from first sight!

from Magali Luckau: “Christening gown with booties and headband I made a couple of weeks ago.”

We’d like to thank Magali for her comment, too, when asked about how difficult it was to do thread crochet like this. She responded: “It’s not any different than crocheting with yarn. Just follow directions. I didn’t follow a pattern on these last few I’ve made though. But that comes with time.” So true! It does take practice, but the skill does come.

We, of course, love traditional thread crochet and making baby things that will last generation after generation. Thank you, Magali, for sharing yours with us all.

As we all know, there are many, many patterns available online and in books and magazines for vintage thread baby dresses. It’s easy to find patterns, too, at yard sales and thrift shops. Just keep your eyes open and then start!
