Four more team members with inspiration to share

Anne from bigalhats

What was the inspiration for your challenge item? the inspiration for my challenge item was (obviously) a bunny- I made up my own pattern and added the little spring like bow for extra twist.

Do you do any other types of crafting or design? I mostly design and make hats, fingerless gloves and headbands but also love to draw and paint greeting cards (only a few samples of my mini cards are in my shop).

How would you describe your own personal style and how is this reflected in your crochet designs? My style is simple, unique(as I create my own patterns and designs),and fun...the shapes are basic with accents of color , flowers, bows,etc. -

WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR YOUR CHALLENGE ITEM?
My challenge item was actually an item I made for a coworker's niece. I loved the bright colours she chose for it and thought the colours made it perfect for the Spring category of the challenge. I'd never used that pattern before, nor the yarn, so it was a challenge on more than one front.

DO YOU DO ANY OTHER TYPE OF CRAFTING OR DESIGN?
Crocheting is definitely my favourite type of crafting right now, but I also enjoy quilting (making rag quilts), cross-stitch and photography. I really don't have the time I wish I did to indulge in all my hobbies though.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR OWN PERSONAL STYLE AND HOW IS THIS REFLECTED IN YOUR CROCHET DESIGNS?
I'm still working on developing my own personal style when it comes to my craft. I enjoy making things that I think people would want to buy, either because they are practical or because they are fun. I'm hoping to continue that in the future, as well as create items that showcase my quirky/odd sense of humour.

What was the inspiration for your challenge item?
I wanted to do something "springy" and something that is easy to make for those who buy the pattern from me.

Has your style changed at all since you first started crochet designing?
No, it hasn't changed, I think.

Please give a quick overview of your design process from the initial idea to the finished product.
When I have a new idea I try to look for the perfect yarn for it, like cotton for babies, then I just crochet-rip-crochet-rip until I like the finished product :) I take pictures of my work while it's in process and write the pattern after it's all done.
