Easy Crochet Jewelry / Small Containers

crochet jewlery dish

These little Crochet Jewelry / Small Containers  are so fun and easy to make.   They are a great way to use up your yarn scraps.  You can choose any type of yarn.  Here I used some cotton yarn in shades of purple and lilac.   You can make them larger by just using more cording.  The method is still the same.   Using silky yarn of nylon also works well.  You can embellish your finished containers with flowers, buttons, etc.

You will need cord piping (about 80 inches), scarps of yarn, crochet hook/ H,  sewing needle, Matching thread, clip or something to hold the end of the cord (safety pins work well) Fray cheek (optional).
I purchased my cord piping at Joanns but you can probably find them at any fabric or craft store.   I used an H hook but you just need to use a hook that is appropriate with the type of yarn you are using.
Step 1:  Gather supplies
Step 2:  Cut 2 strips of cord piping about 40 inches each
Step 3:  Single Crochet over the cording until entire length of cord piping is covered.  Do this for both strips.  I did the bottom piece a solid color and combined 2 colors for the lid.
Step 4.  Cut off the white tip of the cord (you can add a little fray check).
Step 5:  (For bottom piece)  Row your strip in a circle and begin to sew the strips like you would a rug, like a coil.   For the bottom piece you will row around 5 rounds.. then on the next rounds you step to lay the cording a little over the previous row to shape into a bowl as you continue stitching.
Step 6:  Repeat as with bottom piece, except that now you will shape you bowl in the opposite shape.   To shape the handle I fold the first couple inches of cording next to itself and then continue coiling it around and sewing.
Step 7:  Sew in your tails.  The collage below shows some of the steps.  You can also view the video tutorial below for a is step-by-step tutorial.
