I've been a happy hooker since I was in grammar school. That is to say, I love to crochet. I find it less stressful than knitting and easier to do in a spontaneous way. I remember making a shell stitch scarf when I was in 5th or 6th grade. Now many scarves, afghans, toys and booties later, I'm making a blog to share my love for crochet with you.

Embellishing Buttons With Crochet
A photo has been going around Facebook of a crocheted button tutorial. Only the directions look like they are in Czech or Portuguese or something. I don't mind a challenge and my friend Lisa told me about them, so I fiddled around with some today. I have no idea if they are exactly right, but they are pretty so I bought 2 more colors and I'll whip some up for her. If you are going to try this, make sure your crochet hook fits in the button holes, and make sure you buy buttons with four holes. One of the holes has to have two loops through it so the flower will have five petals.

I stuck them to some blue painter's tape so the wind wouldn't blow them away.
