2014/81 – a how-to for you: button holes!

Hey there! So this one is more of a tutorial for the beginners out there. We post a lot of cool stuff, but sometimes it helps to go back to basics, which is what this is.

Here is a link for you that shows you how to crochet button holes. I’m guessing there are plenty of you out there who are trying to think of ways to make winter jumpers unique, perhaps designing patterns etc., so for those that aren’t sure how to do this part, you may find this useful.

Enjoy!

2014/63 – crochet flower and button earrings!

Do you ever find that you have nigh unending heaps of bright buttons going to waste?

Or that you can never find the *perfect* project to add them to?

Well never fear, Happiness Crafty is here with a pattern for some gorgeous flower earrings!

I have a feeling you could equally adapt other patterns for the same purpose – the heart pattern we showed a while ago (great for Valentine’s themed earrings), maybe even the pineapple or the skates (instead of giving them a winter theme, you could use summer colours and use several smaller buttons for wheels instead of blades). You could make earrings like this with any shape pattern! Or even wacky or novelty buttons.

It’s all in UK terms already, and looks pretty easy, so go crazy!
