Ibiza Style: Crocheted Bolster

After making the before shown Ibiza Style Bikini, Bracelets and Barefoot Sandals, I'm totally into Ibiza Style. Not to wear it, because it's not a style I like for myself, but to make it. Because there's a lot of crochet involved in the style, the inspiration is endless and I'm working on four different items at the moment.  Every time I start a new Ibiza Style project, I see something else and I can't wait until the former project is finished.

I really like it to make something different, just to expose it on this blog. I'm planning to fill up this whole month of blog posts with Ibiza Style stuff. Just my luck we still have great, sunny weather here, in The Netherlands, what makes posts like this more appropriate. Who wants to see Ibiza stuff when it snows, after all. So if you absolutely hate everything to do with Ibiza, or if it snows in your part of the world, than you better can skip this month's posts.






I made a great Bolster, for which I found the inspiration on the internet (here, to be exactly). I altered it a bit, so at least one Ibiza Style creation matches my personal style. The bolster fits right in with my other pillows and cushions, so this creation will stay. Even thinking about making more of this bolsters.

Ibiza Style: Barefoot Sandals

After making a Bikini Top for my Ibiza Style loving friend, with matching Ibiza Style Bracelets I had to make the ultimate Boho item: Barefoot Sandals. I used some beads to embellish the sandals. I had never crocheted with beads but after some thinking and some practicing I knew how to do it.

Ibiza Style: Bracelets


After making the Bikini Top I got a bit of an appetite for making Ibiza Style things. Next had to be a bracelet.

Ibiza Style: Bikini Top

A friend of mine is totally into Ibiza Style clothing and asked me to make her a nice bikini top for her upcoming vacation. I know, I hadn't a clue what Ibiza Style was either. I'm not sure Ibiza itself knows what Ibiza Style is.

Ibiza is an island in the Mediterranean Sea for those of you who are not completely informed about the European topography. It belongs to the Balearics, four islands that include also my beloved island Menorca.

Apparently the island of Ibiza has its own style as it comes to clothes, accessories, lifestyle. I think you can also call it Boho Chic. Not exactly my own style, but I thought it would be nice to make something out of my comfort zone.
I found a pattern for the plain top. The colors were picked by my friend. After finishing the top I embellished it a bit with beads and such, to make it more 'Ibiza'.
