Speaking of intricately designed, I remember my mother crocheting fancy doilies with crochet thread and a small hook. Doilies are a top trend today because they can be used under vases and lamps, or on their own to dress up a table. Some extremely talented designers attach them inside hoops to hang on a wall. For examples of the latter, check out @kimhaaktcrochet on Instagram. Her work is stellar.
Out with the old, plain, boring pillows. In with the fun designs, like this pineapple pillow. Tapestry crochet is also a fun and trendy way to add a word/words or design to your pillow. Adding textures or flowers to is also a way to stand out from the crowd. Find one in my shop Here.
