A day is never wasted if you use it to crochet
Much of my not-so-everyday crochet is freeform crochet. Freeform is crochet that is usually worked without a specific pattern. Often, it is bits of crochet attached to each other while frequently changing yarns, stitches, colors, and hook size (although it doesn't have to be). It can also include knitting, beads, embroidery, or whatever! The beauty of freeform is that it really sets you free from a specific format to create whatever comes into your head!
I started the purse on this page in Prudence Mapstone's freeform purse class at the national 2004 CGOA conference and finally finished it in January 2005! It consists of flower and leaf motifs sewn to a mesh purse form. I got the bamboo handles from an old purse that I bought at a thrift store. I then added beads and several leaf-shaped pins (also found at a thrift store).
This mask is made of freeform crochet over a plastic mask form. The freeform is done in cotton crochet thread with bead embellishments. The backing is black felt and it ties in the back of the head.
Every year, I make many freeform crochet neck warmer/scarves, which I sell in my ebay store. These are usually only listed in the fall through the beginning of spring. I collect yarn throughout the year from thrift stores.
I like to play with crochet thread and have made many freeform crochet tops, including this one.
I also make clothing from old doilies. Sometimes, these are crocheted together, but lately, I've been sewing them together on a sewing machine.
