And for all those who have casual Fridays or feel that Fridays should be more laid back, this post is for you!
Today we’re featuring some beautiful free form crochet pieces from the blog Le petit nuage de Marie.
Free form, for those who don’t know, is exactly that, creating something without a preconceived form or design. Now, I don’t think it’s cheating to use a pattern nor un-creative, but there is something about free form anything that is just so beautifully artistic to me. I believe it’s the unique nature of each piece and the inspiration behind each piece that I love seeing.
The inspiration behind this piece was clouds, see full post here.
This inspiration behind this “square” was the sun, see full post here. Even if you can’t read French you can see the beauty of these pieces.
Eventually her pieces will come together to form a bag, these being only two of the four designs. However, you could do so much with pieces like this; you could stitch a bunch together for blankets, pillows, etc, or just use a few as the focal points in such work. I also particularly like the idea of turning one into a piece of artwork for your wall, either more as a tapestry or in a frame. It would be a beautiful way to show off your own creative talents, personalize your home and add colour to it.
If you do speak French and you like the idea of free form but need some inspiration, maybe check out Crocheter en liberté. There they have monthly “challenges” and you can post your creations and see others.
For those who have no set plans this weekend, enjoy free forming it! Enjoy living in the moment and going with the flow.
