Crochet Hooks Cushions – No more sore hands from Crochet

Cushions for your Crochet Hooks –  Say good-bye to sore hands

I have thought of ways to add affordable and comfy cushions for my crochet hooks because  I love, love, love  to crochet… did I mention I love to crochet? One of the bad side effects can sometimes be sore hands especially when using small hooks. I have come up with a cheap way to cushion my hooks. This method works for even my tiny thread hooks. You can find your supplies at any office supply store or even in the school supplies section of a store.  I purchased some at Office Depot and others at Dollar Tree store.   They both seem to work well.

Crochet Rose Embellishment – Make Plain items come to life

Crochet Rose Embellishment

 Crochet Rose Embellishment

Crochet Rose embellishment are a great way to dress up plain items.   I bought this t-shirt at Michael’s when they were having a sale.  Plain t-shirts were $2.00 each!  You can’t beat the price, but unfortunately pretty plain Jane. I liked the V-neck.  It seemed perfect for my plans to embellishment with crochet roses.

Don’t worry my crochet hook to the rescue.  I decided to embellish the v neck section with 3 roses and 2 leaves.  I used simply soft caron for both roses and leafs.  The easy to follow video tutorials are available on my youtube channel.

Check the playlist;  “Flower and Leaf projects” Choose the quick and easy deco rose, and the leaf is the “small leaf”

These crochet roses use basic stitches and can be made in your favorite colors.  The rose is worked as a long strip and then rolled up and then the edges are sewn.  I have seen other roses but many of them seem to be more complex.  I like to simplify things.  I think if you aren’t enjoying what you are doing or if you are frustrated you will probably not complete your crochet projects.   The great part about these roses and leaves is that if you prefer you can make them into pins and that way you can remove them to wash your items.    I have uploaded a free Youtube video tutorial for you to want for both the rose and the leafs.    The links for the video tutorials are on the next page.
