Make It A Crochet Valentines Day!

We all know that Valentines Day will be here soon. Why not add some fun and creative crochet to help celebrate the day! There are so many unique items that you can incorporate into that special day.

I ran across these cute Lips to make as an application or what ever your heart desires. Click here for the pattern {walker whimsy}: Crochet Kissy Lips {14 Days of Fluffy Stuff}.

Another way to add some fun to your wardrobe is to make this scarf! This could be made in pastel colors as shown or make it more vibrant with some red and white or even a touch of black added to it.  You will find the pattern here Conversation Hearts Scarf – Media – Crochet Me.

Have you ever wondered when Valentines Day was first associated with Romantic Love? Well I did so here is some information for you to take with you thanks to Wikipedia.

The day was first associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition ofcourtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as “valentines“). In Europe, Saint Valentine’s Keys are given to lovers “as a romantic symbol and an invitation to unlock the giver’s heart”, as well as to children, in order to ward off Saint Valentine’s Malady.[6] Valentine’s Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.[7]

All right back to some of those unique crochet items that you can create for Valentines Day!  We go from the neck down to the feet. 🙂 I saw these and wanted to make me a pair of these slippers.

Recycle Those Unwanted CD’s With These Useful Craft Ideas

Have you ever wondered what to do with those CD’s that won’t work anymore or you just do not want?  I have made some crochet CD Coasters!  I love the way they look and also the way they soak up any extra moisture that comes from the condensation on a glass.

What I do for a CD Coaster is crochet in the round to make a circle. I make 2 of the circles and put the CD in the middle and sew together the outsides and Viola a CD Coaster!  A simple way to use those old CD’s.

Here is a picture of a Coaster I have made but had not put a CD in the middle. This is what they would look like on both sides. I would post a picture of one with a CD in the middle but they are well used! 🙂
