DIY – Crochet Deer Head Banner

Slide1

Being only a beginner crocheter, I am amazed at the possibilities! At the moment, I am really only comfortable with single and double crochet stitches, but that’s all you need for this crochet banner!SAM_8268

In case it’s not very obvious, it’s a deer head with a little banner that reads “LOVELY”. I love how subtle it is, not screaming at you, can easily be ignored, yet makes a statement. A quiet statement.SAM_8273

My mum suggested adding some pom-poms, which turns out is just what it needed! Good call, mum!

As of yet, the idea was not an original one. I saw this gorgeous banner on Pinterest. The link takes you to Etsy.com. I’d gladly buy the pattern if it was for sale, however it said the item was no longer available. In fact, no more details at all. So I looked the banner, counted the squres, drew the pattern on squared paper, and then made it myself.

I love it, something so whimsical about it.

This is what it looks like against darker background.

Last row was done around the wooden rail and then a long chain for hanging.

Oh, my goodness! I cannot believe how appetizing these little crochet Ice creams look! I made them quite a while ago, but my daughter still sleeps with them and my son still licks them!

This was such a fun project! I guess crochet is lingering a bit! Of all the crochet food I made, this is our favourite! They are easy to make, easy to replicate (unlike the Bear Rug, which does not follow a pattern), and easy to love!

And yet you can still add enough variety to each one, which still makes me feel like I am still expressing creativity, even mass producing!

The pattern is too simple to write, but there are plenty very cheap patterns for sale on Etsy, so I won’t write one here (keep them in business!)

I was flattered to my core when local charity shop asked if they could display some of my items, either as an exhibition or for sale. So all of the Ice Creams in the above photo are available for sale. Hopefully, as my Etsy shop takes off, I will put some there, too!

And so, adding one more crochet “trophy”, or rather “taxidermy” to my collection! A Bear Skin Rug – don’t worry, no animals were injured!

I had to make it with eyes closed… Staring is rude! Especially from your skin…SAM_8217

If you are good at counting crochet stitches and creating patterns, this below shot (shot, ha ha) is for you! I didn’s use an existing pattern for this, but just went along with it. If you are looking to recreate it, I think it is possible to figure it out by looking at the pattern. Have fun!SAM_8220

What better place to lay a Bear Rug than in front of your fireplace! Or rather, your dollhouse fireplace.

And one more.
