5-Petal Crochet Flower Button Tutorial

Hi Everyone, this is my latest video tutorial on You Tube. You can make this little 5-Petal Crochet Flower Button Tutorial from just a scrap of yarn and an odd button. (A good excuse to use up some of those odd buttons).
I found odd bits of yarn I probably would have thrown away were given a new lease of life. I've never been able to use so many odd buttons, it's been fun and they look good when no two are the same.
Here is my video Tutorial - I hope you enjoy this project. NOTE: It has been uploaded in HD, so details can be easily seen. Enjoy.

Tutorial - Knit your own Pocket Monster!

It's been a long time since my last post, but I'm ready for 2010. This was a few weeks in the making, and I'm very happy with these little guys. They're my new creation called "Pocket Monsters". You only need to know basic knitting, crochet and sewing skills to make them. I've created a 2 part tutorial on YouTube which I hope you enjoy.

Here are some pictures of the little guys, and when it comes to uses there are many, you're only limited by your imagination. Some ideas are:
  • iPod cozy
  • Book buddy
  • Mug/cup cozy
  • Brooch
  • Bag
Here's the whole cast of "Pocket Monsters" - the tutorial:
