Lucky Shamrock Hair clip

If your little girl needs a bit o’ green tomorrow it is not too late to make this little hair clip. I need to admit that I have never written a crochet pattern before—-so I am hoping it works for you if you give it a go. It only takes a few minutes.

I used a size 4 crochet needle and embroidery floss (all 6 threads).

Chain 6, dc in 2nd chain from hook and then slip-stitch in remaining 4 chains (this makes the stem), chain 3 and join with a slip-stitch in the 3rd chain from hook to form a ring. For petal *chain 3 turn (only turn the first time), trc , dc , trc , chain 3 and slip-stitch in ring*. Repeat between * two more times so you have 3 petals. Fasten off and weave in the ends. Sew your lucky shamrock to a bobby pin or hair clip.

Now this little girl can tell her big brothers NO PINCHING!

What a Hoot!

When my niece, Katie, was home for Easter I did a little crocheting for her. Katie is a Chi Omega and I thought she needed an owl purse (Chi Omega’s mascot). I don’t really expect her to carry it around campus but I thought it would make a cute bag for something.

It was simple to crochet and I thought having a zipper in the back made it extra cool. I bought the pattern here. The pattern is made by Ana Paula Rimoli. Her Etsy shop is filled with some darling patterns. She has free patterns for a cupcake, fried egg and bear.
