Fun Fur Trimmed Gloves

February 7, 2016 5 comments

Here is a quick and easy little way to add trim to some kid’s or adult gloves. I used fun fur that I got at the dollar store to trim these simple gloves.

Here are a few photos showing the single crocheting around the edge of the gloves. Click on any of the photos to enlarge the images. This project requires one smaller crochet hook such as an E USA hook and one G crochet hook. You crochet one row of single crochet stitches around the top edge of each glove.

Insert small crochet hook (E hook) into the top edge of glove as shown. Pull up yarn through the hole you make with the smaller hook and then using G crochet hook finish the single crochet (SC) stitch.

I leave the G hook in the prior stitch to hold it in place until I am ready to finish the next single crochet stitch. Just continue around

Baby Doll Fun Fur Hat & Booties

August 16, 2015 1 comment

Here are a few baby doll fun fur projects I crocheted. I crocheted a hat and booties for this 11 inch small baby doll. I also crocheted a little matching scarf to go along with the doll set.

I didn’t really follow a pattern for the hat but started with a H (5 mm) crochet hook with a chain of 3 and joined to make a circle. Next I worked 6 single crochets (SC) in the ring, and next round I worked 2 SC into each stitch (12). Then next round, work 2 SC in next stitch and then 1 SC in next stitch, repeat around. I evenly increased to about 28 stitches for the hat and worked even a round or two so it fit my small baby doll as shown. Finished size is 4 inches long with a 9 inch circumference.

This isn’t written as a precise pattern directions as you have to just check the hat as you go along to make sure it fits your particular doll’s head and you get the size you need. Working with fun fur is hard to find each stitch so I just focused on getting the fit I needed rather than the stitch count. So just improvise as you work the rounds to get the size and look you desire for your doll.

Booties

For the booties, I chained 3 and joined into a circle.

Crochet yourself a plastic bag “plarn” recycled tote bag! This bag is crocheted using recycled plastic grocery bags and one roll of fun fur I purchased from the dollar store. Total cost of the project is $1.00. You can’t beat this project as it’s frugal and eco-friendly. As more and more people are going green, crafting with recycled materials is growing in popularity. With the holiday season growing near, consider green crafting as a wonderful alternative this year.
