I’m proud to announce that my crochet pattern for my Coral Bikini design is now available in Interweave Crochet Magazine, Summer 2016 issue.
I’m so thrilled to be included in this issue! And to top off my excitement, it was photographed in the city of Ventura that we frequent very often. We have relatives there and have vacationed there many times, so it is very fun to see the beautiful photographs taken at a familiar place!
The Beach House is known for their guacamole and homemade chips, along with their tacos, yum!
My first job as a young teenager was making custom crocheted bathing suits for a local bathing suit shop. I rode my bike after school to pick up the orders and thread. I rode home and would make them up right away. I got paid by the item and could whip them out pretty quickly.
Here’s some details on this bikini:
You will be turning heads on the beach, poolside or boardwalk wearing this custom crocheted bikini. A vintage shell design from the 1920’s frames the top of this swimsuit. Stripes of contrasting surface crochet give a pop of color to each piece of the bathing suit.
