Roundabout Crochet Infinity Scarf



I came up with this scarf because I loved all the infinity scarfs that I've been seeing on Pinterest lately. My days are mainly consumed with kids and work so I really needed something that wouldn't take very long. This scarf is made in a simple v-stitch that works up pretty quickly. It only took me a few hours to make. 

Materials:

I Love This Cotton (2 skeins)
Size K crochet hook
Tapestry needle

ch 29

Row 1: dc in 5th ch from hk, ch 1, dc in same ch, skip 2 chs, *(dc, ch1, dc) in next st, skip 2 chs, repeat from *to end of row, turn


Rows 2-75: ch 3, *(dc, ch 1, dc) in ch-1 space, repeat from *to end of row


Assembly

Fold scarf in half long ways. With tapestry needle, whip stitch ends together. Then, whip stitch the short ends together. Weave in ends.

Not a very good pic, but I thought I was cute :-)


Enjoy!!!

Ms. Diva Stitches, where the heck have you been???


I know you’ve all been wondering what the Diva Stitches lady has been up to. WELL…I got a new job in July (which I hated). I’m a very picky person. I just left that job at the end of October. I’m starting a new job next week (so excited)! 

But the biggest news of all…I’M PREGNANT! :-) Yes, I’m expecting my 5th baby. We’re really hoping for a boy *fingers crossed*. This pregnancy has been the worst. I have been in the bed for most of it because I have just been so sick. Luckily, my doctor prescribed the best medication in the world so I’ve at least been able to keep my food down. I'm starting to feel a lot more energetic now so I can finally get some things done. 

I have been working on a few things that I’m going to share with you before the week is over. I will also be keeping you posted on my 5th bundle of joy. Hope you all had a very happy Thanksgiving! Stay tuned!!!

Denim Flower Ring Tutorial

Umm...I know what you're thinking. "Isn't this a crochet blog"? I know, I know. But I like to do other things too. Yesterday, I was invited to a barbeque and I wanted something cute to wear. I've been looking everywhere for a super cute jean vest, but I did NOT want to pay for it. I remembered that I saved a jean jacket from way back in high school (yes, I know I'm a pack rat o_O). I just simply cut off the sleeves and viola! I had a new vest. But I still had the sleeves left over and needed something to do with them. So this is what I came up with. Hope you like it!



Materials

Old pair of jeans or any scrap denim
Scissors
Needle and thread (any color is fine)
Circle template (use the smallest circle)
Pins
Glue gun
Ring bases

 Step 1: Cut off one of leg of the pants.
 
Step 2: Cut leg open at inner seam.

 
Step 3: Pin circle template to the fabric and cut out 6 circles.

 Step 4: Fold each circle in half twice.




 Step 5: Place each folded circle together with the corners going in the same direction.

 

Step 6: Stick the needle and thread through the corners only. Do this twice and tie ends together to secure. Cut off excess thread.



 This is what it should look like once it's sewn together.



 Step 7: Pull the circles apart to form a ball.


 Step 8 : Glue the ball to the ring base.
And that's it! Now you have a pretty flower ring.

Flower Power Crochet Earrings




Hey Divas! I've been debating on whether I should do an earring tutorial only because I sometimes I have a hard time verbally explaining things. But I really wanted to do this tutorial. So I made a video to along with the written pattern to help explain things a little better. I hope you enjoy it and please feel free to ask any questions. 


Printable Version

Materials


Aunt Lydia’s Fashion Crochet Thread Size 3
Size 0/3.25MM hook
Tapestry needle
Scissors
Iron-safe scrap fabric
Fabric stiffener
Iron

2 Fish hook earring findings
2 Jump rings

Flower

Start with magic ring

Rnd 1: ch 3, dc 11 in ring, tighten ring, slst to top of ch, fasten off

Rnd 2: Join 2nd color with slst to any dc, ch 1, sc 2 in each st around, slst to first sc, fasten off


Rnd 3: Join 3rd color with slst to any sc, ch1, sc 2 in same st, sc 1 in next st, *sc 2 in next st, sc 1 in next st: repeat from * around, join with slst to first sc, fasten off


Rnd 4: Join 4th color with slst to any sc, ch 2, dc 1 in next 2 sts, ch 2, slst in next st, *slst in next st, ch 2, dc 1 in next 2 sts, ch 2, slst in next slst: repeat from * around, join with slst first slst, fasten off, weave in all ends except ends from Rnd 4.


Assembly

Use strings that are left out to attach ring and fish hook. Refer to the YouTube videos below for assistance. Use the scrap fabric to iron the earrings by placing the earring face down then the fabric on top of the earring. Hold the iron on top of the fabric for a few seconds. I use the highest temp on my iron, but you may choose to lower the temp to be on the safe side. Spray the earrings with the fabric stiffener on both sides of the earring and let them dry. Once dry you can spray the earrings again to make them stiffer.






Enjoy!!!

New Creations!!!





Shoe Re-do

Last Summer I bought these really cute flip flops that had a bow on them. Well the bow kept falling off and hot glue would not keep them on. I really loved these shoes so I had to come up with a way to keep them wearable. This is what I came up with and I love them even more than I did when I bought them!
