Today’s Etsy crochet highlight is something I’ve chosen because it’s a technique I’m interested in exploring more myself which is the option of adding crochet to other fabric to create finished items. I don’t really sew (I kind of hate it) but I do like the combination of fabric and crochet so we’ll see where it goes. These are fabric and crochet sachets from luluhopping1983.

I recently got the Sharp Crochet Hook, which I want to try out to see if that’s a good way to do this type of stuff. Has anyone tried it yet?

    I can sew, but prefer crochet because I do not have to depend on a machine to do the work for me. I used to trade crocheted items with my friends who sewed things for me. Try crocheting edging on a fleece blanket, and you don’t need to do any sewing. :)

      @laurindar3 The Sharp Crochet Hook is actually recommended specifically for edging a fleece blanket so maybe that’s something I’ll need to try!

  2. I have seen some great stuff done in “combo” work. Suede vests and crochet. Lots more. I like sachets .Like yourself don’t care to sew. Be honest do you have room for one more craft in your home??? my yarn would take over my house if I let it..Picture Kudzu made of assorted fibers!LOL As for the sharp hook, no have not got my hands on it yet…Tuscaloosa lost its Hobby-Lobby during the april 27,2011 i have no place to pick up my toys. we have 1 yarn shop and they only cater to knitters (in insult ladys) In truth I have PLENTY to keep me busy…

      @65mary65 I actually order most of my yarn and crochet stuff online. We don’t have the big stores here. I love the small local yarn stores (we’re lucky enough to have 7+) but I tend to be an online shopper. I think the Sharp Crochet Hook is only available online anyway, although I may be wrong about that.

      As for my home, crochet has completely taken it over. It almost looks like an Olek art exhibit. :) Someday I’d like to have a separate art studio somewhere but it’s not in the budget right now.

  3. oops meant NO INSULT my bad not enough coffee and my other half is talking to me as I type….

    This blanket is a great example of another crochet + fabric piece:

  5. Ahh yes i understand the “not in the Budget” I am sure lots of us dream of studio all our own..Someday…:)

      @65mary65 It really isn’t necessary for me since I live alone but I do think it’d be nice. :)
