Quickly Jazz Up Summer Apparel

The fastest way to add pizzazz to a summer wardrobe is to attach one or more crocheted flowers as embellishments for a headband, sun hat or flip-flops. We're sure you will find a floral favorite in the value-packed Interchangeable Flowers to Crochet pattern book. There are 14 pretty flower patterns to get you started, as well as additional flower center and petal shapes which you can use to design your own special flower creations!

We also like the clever suggestion to use snaps to quickly add or change out the flowers as needed. These versatile flower projects will provide endless options for interchangeable accessories that can transform a baseball cap from average to adorable, elevate a ho-hum sundress to sensational or bring floral flair to a summer handbag or hair clip!

Flip-flops are the universal go-to sandal during the summer months, and we love to use crochet to transform this inexpensive item into chic footwear. The Annie's Signature Designs Fancy Flip-Flops pattern includes two style options to quickly convert your basic flip-flop into a trendy accessory for any summer outfit. The instructions explain how to crochet around the straps of the sandal, then add the instep triangle for a lacy-look version, or you can continue on to crochet an ankle cuff for a fun gladiator style. Your friends won't believe these unique, elegant-looking sandals are made using a pair of flip-flops!

Would you like a lightweight shoe that covers the entire foot, but still has the comfort of a flip-flop? Then we suggest using the Oxford Flip-Flop Shoes crochet pattern to create adorable Oxford-style casual shoes that are crocheted on top of flip-flop soles! We love how changing the yarn colors can add personality to these sassy shoes and bring summertime style to a pair of jeans, leggings, capris or shorts.
