Shipping

Lace collars I pack in ecological boxes and decorate them differently. The collar is attached to the white cardboard with a thread. Then, I put the collar in a box lined with paper, which I only use for collars – it has beautiful peony flowers on it, and then the box itself is decorated, always with lace elements. That’s all. This High Neck Collar was sent today to Neu-Isenburg in Germany. Thank you, Sarah, for your order!

New Collar

New Vintage style collar at LaceCrochetFinds this weekend. I did it! The hardest part was ironing the collar after the wash and getting all the creases into place. I even lightly starched it to keep it in shape. Once again, I am convinced that knitting a piece is the easiest thing.

Satin Ribbon

I checked my supplies and understood that I need going shopping. I’ll try to find a pale blue or maybe navy blue or somewhat shade of blue colour ribbon for this new crochet collar. By the way, I like this pattern so much that I started a new choker, this time of red yarn, so I need a bright red colour ribbon too.

New Collar

I have so many new items started, but what can I do if I have a million ideas in my head? Some time ago, I decided to crochet a new/old collar – new by its colour and known by the pattern. I have one on LaceCrochetFinds in cream colour, and a new one is in a pale blue. I’d also like to crochet cuffs to it, but as far I can’t come up with fastening. The collar tied with satin ribbon, but what about the cuffs? Maybe I need to change the design and use a pearl button instead. By the way, this design is one of my favourites.

Crochet Ruffle Collar

Etsy has died totally, but I am trying to add new items as far as I can. Crocheting this ruffle collar took me a lot of time because of a tiny thread (DMC No 20) and a tiny hook – Clover No 1. Fortunately, I am a stubborn person, so I finished it. All I need now is to fasten the collar and iron it. Then, of course, I show it to you 🙂

Geohraphy

One of the last orders in the shop – a high neck collar, of which I am particularly proud. I created it myself – from beginning to end, not basing on a ready-made pattern. This is a new product, recently placed in the shop. The order flew to America, to the town of Halladay, Utah. This is the first time I have shipped to this state and I am curious how long it will take for the package to reach the customer. Fingers crossed for the customer will be happy with her purchase.

My New Toy

It’s certainly not a toy, it’s my long-awaited purchase – a mannequin. I choose it after a long time and the main criterion for choosing exactly it was the colour of the upholstery – natural linen of a possible light shade. This was the colour I was looking for because I guess it shows off white, cream, beige collars as well as burgundy, navy blue or black collars. I spent the whole day running around the flat with this mannequin, looking for the best light, which I failed to do because the day is overcast and it’s raining outside, but I took a couple of pictures anyway. Now I have a lot of work – to crochet almost all the collars, take photos of them on a mannequin and upload them to my shop. Wish me luck!

High Neck Collar

This is the first time I have tried to knit a high neck collar. When I looked at these on the internet, I always thought I couldn’t do it, and wouldn’t make it. However, being on holiday in the Baltic Sea last year, it felt like it crocheted itself – that’s what a good holiday means, not only physically but also mentally! So, let’s keep trying and we’ll make it work!
