Heart Bomb in Leipzig

I decided pretty spontaneously to participate in the One Sheepish Girl annual heart bomb

You can find the instructions on her website, it’s simple but effective!

Make a heart (you can find ideas & instructions here or you use my crochet pattern) , attach a little note ‘You are loved’ or something like this and the hashtag #sheepishheartbomb & distribute the hearts wherever you want!

 

I used my own crochet heart pattern. It’s pretty easy (US terms):

Make a magic ring.

Ch 4,

dtc, 2 tr, 3 dc,

ch 3 sc in first ch,

3dc, 2 tr, dtc,

ch 3

Tighten the center of the heart. Join the ch 3 in the center of the heart with a slip stitch.

Bind off and cut (but not to short).

 

I left the hearts near my flat in Leipzig – at the supermarket’s door, at a church, near the theatre, at a S/M bar, in the tram, in the climbing gim … but see yourself!

It was so much fun!!! ❤

DIY crochet flower earrings with beads

Do you need an incredible and quick present? Or some cute, flowery earrings for yourself?

Here I have a tiny but effective crochet pattern for you!

crocheted earrings

  • You need:
    crochet yarn
    crochet hook
    beads
    earring hooks
    wire bending plier

When you choose yarn, hook and beads please make shure that they fit to each other in size. You can also leave the beads if you want to.

Let’s get started!

String 5 beads on your yarn.

The flower is made with 5 puff stitches.

Puff stitch: Yarn over, insert hook in magic ring and draw up a loop (3 loops on hook), [yarn over, insert hook in magic ring and draw up a loop] 3 times (9 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all loops on hook, slip stitch.

Single crochet with bead: insert hook ring, slide one bead down, draw up a loop, yarn over an draw yarn through both loops (complete single crochet).

Crochet a magic ring.

Chain 1, *1 single crochet with bead, puff stitch* repeat 4 times (5 puff stitches on the ring).

Pull the loop tight and make 1 slip stitch in first single crochet.

Finish off and weave in ends.

The next step is to apply the flowers to your earring hooks. take them and bend up the wire with the plier. Insert the wire in one slip stitch on top of a puff stitch and close it gently with the plier.

Now you can proudly wear them ❤
