I had this lovely sunny yellow variegated crochet thread that I got at a thrift store and it just screamed beach outfit to me. I did the bikini first then the hat with bead hat band and a bead bracelet and necklace to match. I thought she needed a cover up so I did an open weave shawl that can be used on her shoulders or tied around her waist. Finally I thought she needed some shoes so I crocheted some sandals for her.
I have found a lot of crochet thread in thrift stores, so I have quite a supply available now, including some colors they don’t make anymore.
