My birthday

Recently I got to celebrate a very special birthday with my family and friends. Can you guess how old I’m now?

I’m totally giving it away and I am quite alright with that.  This is a birthday I had been looking forward to for quite some time probably because of the movie '13 Going on 30' with Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo. I want to be  "thirty, flirty, and thriving"

I am so excited about this year and everything the Lord has in store for me because I trust His promise: "For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future". (Jeremiah 29:11)

Here’s a picture of my delicious cake: Chocolate Caramel Crunch sprinkled with sea salt. Oh, Wow!. It was SO good: chocolately, sweet, and salty... Perfect combination for this gal!

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.
