I know, these probably look more like crocheted rose buds to you, but no my friends, for Purim this year they are most definitely crocheted curls! With Purim a little less than three weeks off, and a packed schedule on top of that, I figured I'd better get started on the costumes a bit early this year. Maybe I can finally be ready early and avoid that all-nighter making the costumes?
Old habits die hard, and funny enough, a few days ago when my eight year old saw me furiously crocheting another project for Purim, he got a little anxious thinking Purim must be right around the corner. When I informed him that Purim was in three weeks, he got a strange look on his face and said "so why are you doing this so early?" Sweet boy, even craft obsessed, sleep deprived, creative moms can change their ways, right?
So in case you're wondering, I am crocheting these aqua curls as I'm in the process of making this adorable crocheted wig for my daughter. (I have to tell you though, I first tried following the pattern, but since my gauge must have been off the whole thing was a disaster and I ended up ripping it out and simply making my own pattern for the base.)
While most of you will most likely not be making this same wig for yourself or your darling daughter, you could use the idea of crocheted curls in other ways— sew a bunch onto a little baby hat for a cute little head of curls hat, or don't you think they look a bit like a little lamb's wool.....wouldn't a little lamb costume be just adorable? I'm sure you'll figure it out, just let me know when you do! Okay, gotta run still got 40 more curls to crochet.Pin It
