Out now is Interweave Crochet Accessories. It is a special issue filled with just accessories. Anything from hats to shawls to toys to jewelry. Funny enough, that is nearly everything I have in this issue. I have a necklace and earnings flower bag, plaid scarf, and dreidel toy.
The Zylphia Necklace was inspired from a necklace I saw in a catalog that reminded me of crochet. I love mixing crochet motifs and beads on jump rings. So easy to switch out the motifs or beads when you get bored with the look.

Evening Blooms Purse this one was originally designed as a clutch which cracks me up. I got the yarn and the blooms where so huge, I new it had to be a redesign. Luckily, Marcy didn't have a bag like it in the issue yet and we enlarged it. Crocheting the flowers really doesn't take long on this bag, even lining it doesn't take forever either. At least it did not for me, and I hate sewing!
Bearsden Plaid Scarf is a striped scarf with embroidery for the vertical lines. It is a perfect scarf for dad since its easy to make and has no frills.
I can't wait to see the rest of the projects in the issue! I love getting ideas from these special issues.
