A little ball of yarn…

…and a crochet hook. That’s all it took to create these cute and cosy flower adorned headbands!

My aunt taught me to crochet when I was around ten years old and since then I have only managed to turn out a simple
scarf or two using basic stitches. However, a few days ago I happened upon a gorgeous crocheted headband during my daily Pinterest trawl. Ooooh, I can do that, I thought to myself.  Why not try something new?

A quick dabble in Google threw out a ton of YouTube links giving instructions on how to make these lovely little hair adornments. Armed with a shiny new hook and bargain yarn,  I got started. The challenge had begun!

And here are the results:

Pretty cool right?! And the best bit is that the flowers are interchangeable, you simply attach a button to the headband and pop your chosen flower on or off. Very clever!

I don’t dare put up my own tutorial because I am still a novice but if you would like to make a few of these grab a crochet hook, some yarn, a good YouTube vid, and a little bit of patience and you’ll be all set to create this fun and fashionable little project!  🙂

Summer off

There is no point in pretending that I have been able to give this blog the attention it deserves, so I won’t.

I come and go. But for now,  here I am!

On an upbeat note, I had a pretty great summer! I visited the Olympics, the Paralympics, took the kids to Disneyland Paris, participated in the Notting Hill Carnival in full feathery & revealing costumed glory, and escaped on a girly weekend to Brussels.

All in one month. Thank you August! 🙂
