Warm weather calls for...

So let's see this to me I'd say calls for food, friends, beach, sand and oh wait! Cute accessories to wear!

So let's start off with one of my favorites: choker necklace made of cotton or hemp(macreme). Then some earrings maybe an ankle bracelet or barefoot sandal and a couple of boho chic crochet bracelets and maybe finish it off with a cute flower barrette. Talk about bohochic cuteness!

yolandascreations.storenvy.comI believe that you can wear accessories that will play well in the hot weather. You don't want something heavy that's going to drive you crazy because it's humid outside and hey you know yourself if you're anything like me you will want to rip it off cause you're annoyed that it's hot and clunky and you won't want to wear anything.
Well I can tell you that my style of making jewelry has always been to make things that not only will make you look cute and relaxed but you can definitely wear it anytime of the year it just all depends on how you want to dress up or down your outfit.

www.yolandascreations.storenvy.comWhat I make I feel and believe in strongly it will keep looking cute and fabulous.  Here I am showing you a couple of crochet seed bead bracelets, a very chic pair of crochet earrings with hand sewn seed beads as well. All the key components I mentioned in the beginning to make your outfit.

I used Aunt Lydia's crochet thread #3/yarn for the earrings - which I normally find a variety of colors and thread size at Jo-Ann Fabric. As for the embroidery floss/thread for the bracelets I find a big variety at Michaels.

Remember hot weather doesn't mean no accessories...just find the right pieces that will work well with the weather.

Crochet Clutch Purses

I have been crocheting purses now a while and I can tell you I do not get tired of creating these.

I like going to my local AC Moore craft store and going to this huge basket where they have some of the coolest acrylic yarn. I find yarn that you normally would not find in your regular yarn shelf.  Which is ok with me because it allows me to make a one-of-a-kind purse (hence the brown ombre you see here).

I have found that my cool buttons for my bigger purses I find online at Joann’s Fabric.
Each of these have a cotton fabric lining which I have sewn by hand.  The only thing I do use the sewing machine for is for sewing the lining to the zipper (which I do first) I sew the button to the outside of the purse before I sew the lining directly to the purse. 
All of these beautiful creations I always crochet in the same stitch (1/2 double crochet) to give it a more tight look.

All of my crocheted creations are made with care. Item comes from a non-smoking home. Hand washing is recommended and line dry preferably. 
I hope you have the time to make some of these for yourself or to give as a gift or even sell them.. Be adventurous with your creations.

Crochet Ear Warmers

You will definitely not mind being outside with these hand crochet ear warmers.  Not only will your forehead not feel the cold but you will protect your ears and still look fabulous.

These are simple and fashionable and let’s not forget adorable! I crochet these with soft acrylic yarn, and some I have with a button to fasten or you can tie it behind your head.  They do have a stretch to it so it will fit most ladies heads.  You definitely will ward off the chill with my crocheted accessories such as these ear warmers.

I like making these in a variety of colors, thickness, width and style.  You can add buttons or trimming to them.  Also, you can utilize your leftover yarn from other projects to make these.  They are machine washable and line dry preferably.
