Top 7 Free Granny Squares Pattern

Happy New Year ! 

2014 has already started and has come in full force in thanks to @mummy_stacey on Instagram (IG). She had the fantastic idea of starting a crochet mood blanket made up of 52 squares (1 per week) or 365 squares (1 per day).  Each person can choose their own colors and their own style of square.

Stacey's idea has been very well received at IG that has gone viral.

Follow along in any of the following ways:

How to Make a Crochet Fabric Fusion Dress

This post contains affiliate links.

The life of a crafter tends to revolve around trying new patterns, combining materials, making something completely new. Sometimes it turns out just like we imagined it would, other times...well,  those times are good too. The process of crafting  is what makes it fun and worth the ride. One book that has really inspired me into this fusion technique has been Fun with Yarn and Fabric: More Than 50 Projects to Sew, Crochet, it is filled with projects that combine fabric with yarn into beautiful projects like cushion covers, blankets, etc.It is also so colorful that it will really motivate you into trying new color schemes.

Some time ago, I got this turquoise chevron fabric from Hobby Lobby with the intention of making a dress that would combine crochet and fabric. Just like a fusion blanket, I would make a fusion dress: fabric and crochet together to make a new dress.
