2014/71 – something for beginners

Hello!

So here’s one which isn’t exactly crochet but it a great idea for when you have odd strands and straggly bits of yarn left-over which are too small to start a new project with.

Yarnball earrings! How cute are they? I can imagine wearing pink ones all the time. Love it!

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!
