Happy Tuesday! As I have mentioned in a previous blog, I have a craft fair coming up in a few weeks. This is the first craft fair I have done this year; it is for my daughter’s school, so I am focusing on crochet accessories for kids. Some of the items you have seen, like the colorful headband and cowl set.
Here is my adult version.
I have made A LOT of cowls and headbands. They are fairly simple to make and reasonably priced, plus they are great Fall weather wear.
I did want to offer something simple that a kid can buy for his/her teacher or parent. I liked the idea of crochet succulents, but as I got going I opted for making a crochet poinsettia instead. I started off viewing this video tutorial for a basis on how to make it. I then adjusted to fit what I wanted. Here is my info.
Patons Grace in Cardinal and Ginger
Tapestry needle and scissors
Small Flower: With Ginger, ch 4, sl st into first ch to form a loop. Ch 5, sl st into loop, repeat 5 times. Sl st to first sl st pulling Cardinal through to change colors.
Big Flower: sl st into ch between first loop, ch 7. sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next, dc in next, tc in next, dc in next, and hdc in last ch, sl st into the ch between the next loop. Repeat 5 times ending with a sl st between the first loop.
Row 2: ch 9, sc in 2nd and 3rd ch from hook, hdc in next, dc in next, tc in next 2 ch, dc in next, and hdc in last ch, sl st into the ch between the next loop. Repeat 5 times, ending with a sl st between the first loop.
What do you think? Do you like this project? Have you ever done a craft fair, any tips? I’d love to hear your feedback, until next time, Happy Crocheting!
