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.

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!
