There was a baby shower to attend last night, and I had Julius Caesar to avoid yesterday afternoon. Clearly it was time to listen to music from the Lion King while I crocheted and Caleb played with Legos on my bed...
I had seen a wonderfully inspiring step-by-step tutorial on how to create tassie clips...and I wanted to make a couple myself. One problem though... I was crocheting for a little boy, not a little girl. Pink flowers were out. My grey and beige yarn colors were needed, and circles were in order. ;)
They're cute, aren't they?
The tassie clips were very simple to make, and they weren't very time consuming either. I was able to use yarn and buttons I already had, actually. The real booger was finding those clips!
I had to find mitten clips...or suspender clips.. Ok. Honestly, I didn't know exactly what I was supposed to be looking for. I struck out at Hobby Lobby and Michael's. It wasn't until I searched desperately through the aisles of Jo-Ann that I finally found something that would work. The fashion clip worked perfectly. I just needed scissors to chop off the stretchy white elastic, since I only needed the clips!
I used this helpful tutorial as my main instructions manual for yesterday's project:
