Last year I saw a really cute bracelet on Pinterest. I really wanted to make one like it. It had been made with superduo beads but I didn’t have any and had not worked with them before. My local Hobby Lobby had a very limited selection but I bought a couple of colors and put them aside for when I got a chance to play with them.
I finally got around to making that bracelet today and I love it! I loved making it and I think it is really cute. I went online and ordered several more colors. 🙂
I can’t wait for the new beads to come in! I think these will be perfect for Spring Craft Fairs. What do you think?
I LOVE crocheted flowers and motifs. I especially love them when they are crocheted with thread; they are so dainty and pretty. I also LOVE color. All colors. Looking at beautiful colors makes me happy!!
One of the great things about crocheting these small motifs, is that I can actually finish them in one sitting! Which is especially good if you are like me and suffer from ADCD (Attention Deficit Crafting Disorder 😉 )
As much as I love making them, I had struggled with what I would do with them. And then I saw something that looked like a crocheted earring and I thought, ‘Brilliant’!! How completely brilliant! I can make these adorable motifs in every color imaginable and actually make something useful!
It was only available as a graph but I have converted it into a written pattern if you would like to give it a try! I use size 10 crochet thread and a .8 or 1.0 steel hook.
