Crown Ear Warmers

Trend Alert!

Lots of people on my news feeds have been making these crown ear warmers.  I went searching around for patterns and I only really found one pattern pinned multiple times on Pinterest.  They all led back to this pattern available for free on Ravelry by Erangi Udeshika and she has her own blog at Crochet For You.

Anyway, this is a quick little filler post.  If you’ve been looking for a pattern for these crown ear warmers.  Here it is.  Looks super cue and easy.  Enjoy!

Shimmy Time

I’ve been taking belly dance classes for about 4 years now.  I’m not great.  I don’t dedicate lots of time to practice.  But it’s fun and I enjoy it.

I love to buy skirts and hip scarves for class, and I’ve bought tons of hip scarves, but they all have the cheap coins on them.  It’s difficult to find good coins anymore.  So I decided to make my own.

Halloween Ghosts

I was at Walmart this morning, and I saw these cute little ghosts.  I said to my husband, “Wouldn’t they be cute hanging from our tree?”  And he said, “You could make that.”  The original ghost was $3.98 each.  I went back to the craft section and picked up some plain white cotton fabric, some Styrofoam balls, and some pipe cleaners.  Total cost = $7.00 and enough materials to make 6 ghosts, but I could have bought one less pack of cloth ($6.00 total).

Doily Patches

When I was out in New Mexico for vacation I was in a little boutique.  They had these cute clothes with patches, lace, and doilies and I thought to myself, “I can make something like that.”  Then a month or so ago, a lady in one of my crochet groups on Facebook posted pictures of her granddaughter’s jeans that she patched with doilies.  I’ve been wanting to buy a pair of torn jeans ever since, because I wanted to make something like that as well.
