Hair Clippies - Crocheted

Time for something new. I love projects that work up quickly and these definitely do. Plus, these little clips have grips on the inside so they don't slip even in the finest of hair. I can't wait to make more of these.

Using H hook and worsted weight yarn:


Chain 4 and form ring.

5 SC into ring. (slip st and tie off if you want to change colors for the petals here)

Slip st into first sc, chain 3

4 dc then slip st into same sc – repeat around and finish off

Glue to clippie…you can also use beads, buttons or jewels to glue or sew on flower.

Lady bug:

With black –


Chain 4 and form ring (I personally like to use an adjustable ring here)

1) 5 sc into ring (or 5 sc to make adjustable ring)

2) 2 sc into each sc

3) 2sc, 1sc into each sc around


You have two choices here. You can tie off and create another small circle repeating steps 1 and 2 and then sew to first circle


Slip st into next sc, 1 hdc, 2dc, 1hdc into same sc and finish with slip st


With Red-

Chain 6-9 (depends on how tight you crochet) – enough to match the length of the body.

Sc into 2nd chain from hook, hdc, 2dc, hdc, sc 9 (add hdc, dc, hdc as needed for length) – turn and add second row of sc if you want a larger wing

Repeat for second wing. Using black, place French knots where you want. You can also sew/glue sequins or felt circles (easier)

I'm Batman!

Kassidy's friend loves Batman and since it was her birthday, I made her a cut-out t-shirt. Cute, huh?

Aftyn's Too Cute Outfit

I crocheted this outfit and matching hat for my cousin, Aftyn. No pattern, just made it up as I went along. I hope it fits. It's not easy creating for a model who lives in another state.
