Easy Crochet Headband w/ Flower

Standard

This weekend, I will be working a booth at a local Walk for the Cure Breast Cancer Awareness walk. I’ve never been the girly-girl whose closet is filled with pink, so tonight I set out to make myself a headband that will totally have me rocking the pink Saturday. I know a lot of the basic crochet stitches but nothing too extravagant…so this entire headband (flower included) consists of only chain stitch, single crochet, double crochet, and slip stitch. I used a size I crochet hook (5.50 mm), yarn needle, Peaches & Cream pink yarn (headband), and Red Heart red yarn (flower). 

How did I do it though? By the power of Google, of course! Here are the tutorials I used.

The headband is simply made with chain stitches and single crochets:

The flower I am especially proud of since I thought it would be far too complicated for me to ever do. WRONG! So simple, especially after following along with this video.

A messy mess

Standard

Yes, these pages are a mess…pretty similar to how I felt this week. Oh Valentine’s Day, the holiday I have always hated, whether I have been with someone or not. This year though, my real valentines were my parents. I found the card and two bags of M&Ms in my suitcase before heading back to school. Somehow they must’ve known I’d be playing the mopey girly-girl gorging herself on the chocolates at her bedside and gagging at every sappy facebook status on her newsfeed. Talk about my relationship? No, thank you. I don’t even know where to go with that one. The flowers are from him though…sweet..and a colorful (although bulky) addition to my journal. Hopefully better journal pages are just around the corner. I’m going to need it.
