Minion Fingerless Gloves

 

Minion inspired projects seem to be everywhere.  I must admit that soon I will reach the point of saturation when perhaps I will be over them.  Luckily that time hasn’t yet arrived.  This week my granddaughter asked me to make her some fingerless gloves (also known as wristers).  She specifically said she wanted them to resemble the Minions.  Since wristers are pretty basic to make and I had already written an eyeball pattern I decided to combine them here.  I hope you enjoy this project.

I decided to crochet this easy bag which is made using granny squares.  Summer is almost here and so are the outings we all enjoy.  If you enjoy granny squares here is another great project.  You will need to make 3 granny squares with 12 rounds each.  (Each square measure 18″ square). You make make it with any colors of your choice, or all one solid color.  Please note this is a large bag.  It measures about 25 inches by 25 inches without handles.   I am working on a video tutorial and it will be available on my youtube channel on  4/ 15/13 after 7pm PST.

Crochet Rose Embellishment – Make Plain items come to life

 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.
