Then Pinterest came along and just fed the love that I have for crochet and gave me endless ideas and inspiration for my next projects. I found this “Baby Turban Project” on Pinterest and followed the instructions provided there. Since Valentines Day is coming up, I added my own little flair with a small crochet heart to finish it off. The total project cost was under $3.00, since I bought my yarn at Hobby Lobby 50% off.
Today I’m sharing two fun Valentine’s ideas for kids. One of them you’ve already seen partially, but I’m re-visiting it because I added two more to my collection. I’d been hearing “I want my own!” (in a very whiny voice) way too many times.
You remember this post, right? Well, I got an extra burst of energy the other day, so I went with it and made two more mini mailboxes for my other cute kiddos. Now they all have their own, and they couldn’t be happier about that! Each morning they practically fly down the stairs to see what little surprise awaits them. 🙂
I cut their initials on my Silhouette using the “My Own Topher” font and stuck them on the front of each box. Every night after the kids go to bed, I fill them with a little thing that I scored at the dollar section in Target…stickers, heart patterned pencils, candy, and mini play doughs. I’m going to write a few love notes on these cute free printables to add a more personal touch one of the days. These are everything a craft should be–simple, cheap, and cute! Have I convinced you yet to make some? 🙂
And now, to switch gears a little bit, you are lucky enough to get a two-for-the price-of-one deal today! I have another wonderful reader submission to share.
AnaMaraea is one of those people that you want to hate, but don’t, because they can do everything! She is seriously so talented, it’s not right. She’s my good friend, though, so I have been the beneficiary of her many abilities.
Anyway, just in time for our Valentine’s Idea Week, Ana is going to share how she made this cute kids’ Crochet Heart Turban.
Take it away Ana!
My name is AnaMaraea and I love Pinterest. It has helped broaden my love and passion for crafts-particularly crochet. I started crocheting 2.5 years ago after miscarrying two consecutive times. I was devastated and heart-broken and couldn’t understand why it had to be. Crochet helped me through that rough time by allowing me to create something beautiful and complete.
Didn’t hers just turn out so cute? I love the added touch of the crochet heart. Thanks for sharing, Ana!
Stay tuned next week for a few more fun Valentine’s ideas! It’s almost Love Day!
