buttons, brooches-crochet brooches tutorial trial(lol)

for a few days i was in mood to make some buttons.searched for them but couldn't find enough to satisfy my hunger so i made some of my owns..i few pictures with the method i've made them...

                           they looked like these at the begining and weren't very difficult to make ..
                                            still very difficult showing you how lol

 for example this very brooches was made like this(but i must admit every button has his own personality-i mean differences-and i'm NOT GOOD in making tutorials!!!-

 the hook size nr1 and two different kind of yarn-the purple oneis schaschenmayer for refference
 wrap the yarn for 8-10 times around your finger(it depends on your yarns thickness}

make as many stitches as needed to cover the whole yarn circle-do pull together time to time for a nice outcome(usually don't count them)
 i'm sure yours will be prettier...(about 48 stitches here)
R1:sc,skip1,sc,skip1 all over round one (24 sts)
R2:sc,skip one or 2sc tog(two sc toghether) all over (12sts)
R3:sc in every stitch(12 sts)
R4:sc,skip1,sc up to the end

leave a long tail then fasten off for adjusting those little wholes that are visible here and there-if you want to decorate with little embroidery flowers as i did,the buttons surface must be dense.

when you covered all the wholes you turn inside out your work and it will look like this-a little  crochet nut perhaps?

 or a floyd...when this ready make your emboridery design on its surface then follow the pictures below

go aorund the bottom using chain stitch

sc all over as above ,when ready ch4,skip1,sl st to next,ch4,skip1,sl st and repeat all over...(missing picture,i've told you...) it is required paired nr of sts
{of course you can try different edging stithes they all look so nice}

 for the other side of the brooches MR(magic ring)
R2:28dc,leave long tail for sewing as below...

uh,this is was very difficult...i better go back crocheting...

 or they can be sewed together and make a X-mas tree decoration or anything else

 Have fun!!!,ildi

more beanies

beanie fever has got me again...patterns are running in my head and before i finish a project i already  make changes along the way and try new ideas i'm just enable to laid on paper...yet to come hopefully.(?? i never know what tomorrow brings-addiction or abandon)..i love that freedom but hate when i want a replica and  can't do it...i blame my rhapsodic spirit that always drives me with itself.feels so good thought :)
here is what i'm talking about-it all started with the need for a new simple beanie for my son and still continues..........i;ve made about 8-9 beanies in these past 30 days...so cool me down,i'm burning!

this is the needed hat,30% wool/70 %acrylic yarn used.it worked out really fast.
this supposed to be a shawl to match with hat but didn't liked how it was coming out (moss stitch?) so i've rennunced and undone ....

.....are you playing?
yes,you've figured out it is a weird game(lol)but anyway i won after all

i've played all my spots,bye

Above all else,guard your heart,for everything you do flows from it.

sunshine and crochet

 the kids had one week break(nov.2-9) and so does we, therefore we spent a splendid week in our little summer house ,one cut and paste late summerish week we are so thankful .i don't recall actually having so much sunshine and heat in November...a real gift from God. we've enjoyed long walks in nature and fresh air,no internet, still a movie in the night for the kids while i was working some little crochet accessories...

--for now a simple little headband worked out with halfdoublecrochets,( hdc)...the texture is quite good and compact i'm sure will nicely protect the ears of a girl i'm wanting to give away...

bye untill next time................ildi

Linking this post to Annemaries linky party tomorrow!>Enjoy the fun!
