Creating & Capturing

I have some more new designs / items on the way to the VLC shop! I am really loving playing with new textures, colors, patterns, and designs. It makes crocheting so much fun and interesting when you get to be creative and see what new accessory is going to come off the hook next! ;-)

Here's a few new items just listed today, you can find them + more at my shop here:

My first striped infinity scarf is so chunky and warm, plus it's reversible! :-)

Cute Custom Requests

Such a neat idea by @rawcliffephoto, who requested two of my caramel mini bows without any hairbands attached, to sew onto her fingerless gloves. They turned out so cute! ;-) 

I love doing custom requests! If you have any ideas of your own, I'll be happy to work with you. :-)

How to: The Dutch French Braid Bun by vintagelookcreations

Everyone is wearing buns now-a-days, and there are so many ways to wear them! This one is super elegant looking. :-)

For this hairstyle, you will need the following:

Sock Bun Maker (found HERE on my etsy shop)
Bobby Pins
Hair Elastic

Now on with the tutorial! :-)

1.  Put hair in high ponytail. Place it in the spot that you want the bun to be.
2. Put ponytail through the sock bun maker, leaving out a small piece of hair (about a 1 inch section)
3. Fan hair out around the sock bun like so.
4. Find the small section you left out, and divide it in three, preparing to start a Dutch French braid. (If you are unfamiliar with the Dutch French Braid, please see the tutorial HERE.)
5. Grab a small section from the hair hanging over the bun maker, and add it to the left piece.
6. Cross this new left section UNDER the middle section, then cross the right piece UNDER the (new) middle section..

7. Continue Dutch French Braid around (adding hair only to the left section, and crossing left under middle, then right under middle each time)
8. Once you have added in the last piece of hair from on top of the bun, continue braiding the hair all the way down.
9. Wrap the tail around the bun. (if you have shorter hair, the tail won't be as long)
10. Use bobby pins to hide the tail, and to secure all the way around.
11. Gently pull the sides of each braid loop all the way around to make the braid look extra full and thick.
And you are finished! This hairstyle took me 2 times to get it down, so don't give up if it doesn't turn out right the first time! Remember, practice makes perfect! :-)
