This project will be perfect when you have only few minutes spare time for your crafts. This cute little band will take only about 5 minutes of your time and a tiny scrap of yarn. Yet it will be a perfect gift for your baby girl, even for a teenage girl. I made this for my 9 month old baby so it is tiny and cute.
Best of all it’s so easy to make this crochet hand band (bracelet ?maybe 😁). Wanna know how to make one of these ? Ok. Let’s make it .
Take two leftover yarns from your stash. I took light rose and dark rose colours for my band. Yarn is a worsted weight size.
You need 3mm crochet hook, a scissor , and a tapestry needle instead of yarn.
Now make 3 flowers like this.
Follow this pattern for making flowers
I made slight changes to my 3 flowers by increasing and decreasing some double crochet stitches. That’s why my flowers are not the same size.
Next you have to make a stripe. Just make about 50 chains with one yarn. I used dark rose colour for my stripe. See below.
Now all you have to do is attaching the flowers into the band (stripe). Attach the flowers into the middle of the band so that you can knot them easily on your baby’s hand.
Look how cute it is. I took the photos while my baby was sleeping. Soon after she woke up, she took it off. But that’s how babies are. No hard feelings. 😄😄
This is an exclusive post in New Craft Works as this project is made by me. 🙂 Sorry for unclear photos as I don’t own a better camera. I captured these images with my good old Samsung Galaxy Y which has a poor 1.3 mega pixel camera. Hope you’ll bear with the images.
I have lots of left over yarns which I used to make a wonderful crochet baby blanket. As I didn’t share any unique tutorials here, I thought I should use some of them and make something for you. Here is a very quick project you can make within under 5 minutes. Oh, I think it just takes about 3 minutes.
It’s really easy to make this bookmark. Here is the tutorial.
Make the slip knot first. Then stitch 2 chains. (1st Step)Then stitch 6 Singe crochet stitches on the 2nd chain from the hook. Slip stitch and close the round. Now you should have a basic round.
Then 3 chains, slip stitch on the next chain. Again 3 chains, sip stitch on the next chain. Repeat the process until you get 6 loops. Slip stitch and close the second round.
2 chains, 6 double crochet stitches, 1 single crochet stitch in the loop and connect to other loop with a slip stitch. Repeat the process until you finish all 6 loops. slip knot and you are done with the first flower.
Now crochet chains from the same yarn until you get the desired length of your bookmark. Then make another flower from the last chain hole. Repeat the process from “1st step”.
Now you have a cute little crocheted bookmark to keep your book organised.
My Next target
Buy a Digital Camera to capture my Craft Projects.
Wish me I could buy one so that I can share some more beautiful projects with you.
