Suede Panel Cardi Design Work

This is such a cool project, I've search the net and I'm surprised I've found NOTHING like it!

My progress so far:
  • design sketch = done
  • the swatch = done
  • schematics = done
  • pattern = in progress

My head is spinning with tons of ideas for future fun and funky projects/patterns using suede and leather panels. I've sketched 3 more designs for woman's wearables using this technique. Purses and bags also entered the picture. I came up with a super simple purse with this technique; easy, quick, and perfect for everyday. I also envision a huge hobo bag using scraps of multi colored suede, then pieced and crocheted together similar to freeform crochet. This is on the eccentric side and not mainstream, but sometimes my designs are not for the "masses", they are for the diva eccentric who needs to create unique pieces of art.

In the mean time, I’m only posting just so much of the Suede Panel Cardi design and project, because it is for my upcoming book. I’ve gotta keep some of it a surprise! Stay tuned!

My first look at your blog Pam, you are so talented, I didn't realize you were so serious about this book. I have not seen anything with suede, no patterns (but I only knit) What is feeform crochet? Mary (from Tiny Tots)

Wow, this book is looking good so far! I can't recall seeing a crochet book with the idea of incorporating suede panels into the work. Very creative Pam!
