Fast and fabulous fancy dress pieces to create in crochet!
As a new convert to crochet, and a mother of two small superheroes, Emma Friedlander-Collins was frustrated by the lack of cool patterns available for children's costumes, so she decided to start writing her own. Crochet Dress-Up is a collection of over 35 pieces, which make up 15 different costumes, is the result. All the dressing-up favorites are here, from a pirate to a mermaid, fairytale characters such as Rapunzel and Red Riding Hood, superheroes and Vikings, and even some furry friends - cute cat and a floppy-eared bunny. All the items are quick to make - great for those last-minute panics over forgotten party invitations - and will cost you a fraction of the price of store-bought outfits, as well as being truly unique.
