I've been feeling a little loopy the past couple of days. Yes! Loopy, as in crocheting and knitting and making lots and lots of loopy-loops. One thing I resolved to do this year is to teach myself to knit and crochet. So I started with these very simple crocheted hair bows that take a matter of a few minutes to whip up.
I found these very detailed and easy to follow direction on Jess's blog, Craftiness is Not Optional and gathered up the only yarn I had on hand and old crochet hooks and began.
The instructions were really easy to follow for someone like me who has very little crochet knowledge.
Viola! I did it. I attached a hair bow clip on the back and it is set to clip on a little girl's hair.
So fast and easy, in fact, that I whipped out two. And then decided to try a third one using a larger guage crochet hook and yarn. The orange one was easier to do, but kind of chunky and bulky, I think. Nevertheless, they are super fun, fast and easy to create.
At House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge blog this week's theme is "New Beginnings" and to create a card of something new...which can include a new skill. This adorable Happy Hopper is busy getting loopy just like me! *smiles*
