I love hair accessories for my kids. I had seen this kind of hairband in the market and wanted to make one for my kid. I had some length of blue crochet thread (the one that is used to make purses, totes, and bags). I also had a plain black metal hairband. Twenty minutes and this hairband was ready. It looked great and sat pretty in her hair.
There is no video tutorial though, because I was the only one at home and couldn’t crochet and make the video at the same time. So please bear with me. I am posting instead another similar video tutorial for a crocheted rose.
Now, I am a crochet geek, so I know the basics. But if you don’t know crocheting, you will find all that you need to learn here.
This tutorial uses a trim as well. I didn’t have any contrasting thread to trim so I didn’t do it. Instead I stitched a silver round button. I usually keep a large stock of colorful buttons at home. You never know when you are going to need one.
Then I inserted the flower into the hairband and then used a bit more thread to secure it. The flower remains suspended though, so you can change which side it should go to.
Other interesting ideas to use this with:
- Insert a safety pin in this and use it as a brooch
- Insert it in a safety pin and use it on a crocheted or a plain sun hat for an interesting look
- Make tiny roses with a thin thread and use them instead of buttons
- Make tiny roses and embellish a plain frock or a dupatta with these.
- Make large roses and sew them end to end to make a delightful winter scarf
- Attach a thread to one end and use it as a book mark
The possibilities are endless. Once you know how to crochet this rose, you can use it almost anywhere, just brew your imagination a little. 😉
