Cro-Tat Book Marks
Cro-Tat
I was the in-house designer for Annie's Attic when we were developing the cro-tat technique. I did tons of cro-tat designs. Unfortunately, the hooks are no longer being made, so if you have an old hook, hold on to it!!

Devin's Dress




When my first granddaughter Devin was little, she had a beautiful burgundy velvet dress with a lacy ivory collar. It had the cutest little matching beret! I made this doll dress with matching beret and booties for her, but it isn't nearly as cute as she was in her outfit! The pattern was published in Annie's Favorite Crochet (I think!)

Two of my Pattern Books

I have been a professional crochet designer for over 20 years now. It is always fun to come across my old books on the internet. I will post pictures of them as I find them. Here are two that I really love:





Crinoline Ladies

I love crinoline ladies!! I designed this cro-tat set about 10 years ago, and it was published by Annie's Attic. (Her hat is supposed to be folded down behind her head)
