I Published a Book!

June 29, 2024

I am so excited to announce that my crochet pattern book “Crochet Girls” is NOW AVAILABLE!

I have been working on this book with my publisher Better Day Books for YEARS! It was so much work and took so much time so I am so happy that the publication date is finally here!

I made my first “girl” applique in 2017 and I was obsessed with making these fun girls and I kept sharing them on social media over the years and even started selling a pattern for them on Etsy HERE

It’s been so nice to see these girls evolve and come to life in the pages of this book!

To give you a summary of the book:

Get ready to stitch the cutest crochet girls ever! Inside this endearing book, you will learn how to make 10 adorable crochet girls in a flat style that’s tailor-made for appliqué projects.

You’ll get started with a foundational Classic Girl project that teaches you how to stitch the basic components, including the head, hair, neck, and torso. After that, you will learn how to elaborate on the design to create 9 unique girls by adding special details, different hairstyles, and fun accessories. Each project includes two different skin tones and a cute add-on item. Once the projects are stitched, you will learn how to apply them to a variety of surfaces to make adorable gifts and décor, including tote bagsmagnetsframed art, a denim jacket, and more.

I hope you love this book! It was so fun to make! Make sure to share your projects with me on social media! @crochetbycolleen
