I love meeting designers that are positive and supportive of others. A couple of years ago I started seeing this purple (lavender) chair pop up with cute crocheted projects.
Since squishy soft slippers are a favorite of mine, her slippers were the first ones that caught my eye. Aren’t they wonderful?
Dorianna’s Francesca patterns have a really nice stitch combo. I wanted to give them a try.
The patterns were super easy to follow and fun to make. I always enjoy being able to make something without trying to figure out the pattern. I definitely would suggest her patterns and hope you will give them a try.
I LOVE how they turned out and even wore them yesterday. Such a fun set.
I thought it would be fun to learn more about the designer with this chair and cute designs.
