Crochet Tutorial: Make-up Brush Case

This is a very practical project! My Make-Up Brush Case is a very easy and fun item that is compact to transport and keeps your brushes organized. This also makes a great gift for a makeup artist! Contouring, highlighting, and wings are all the rave in makeup artistry! I demonstrate in a video tutorial how to make this holder that can be modified to hold other items if make-up brushes are not your thing.


Instead, make one for your paint brushes, art supplies, utensils, crochet hooks, pens or other sets of tools. Many things can be placed in this convenient holder, making this a must have in keeping important items organized and clutter to a minimum!

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this case:

Crochet Tutorial: Beast Costume Gloves

As I make progress on the costumes that I am designing for Nate and myself for Halloween, I was puzzled over how to make a pair of Beast Mitts. I pooled over ideas of what would work, what would be comfortable for an evening of partying with our friends, what would look like a pair of paws with claws? All these questions are answered in this pair of open finger gloves.

beast3

These mitts are not meant for freezing temperature days. Just by appearance, it’s obvious why. These are strictly for costume purpose. However, but omitting the finger/claws you would have a basic pair of fingerless gloves or hand warmers.

I used Red Heart Boutique Fur to cover these paws. You are free to use creative choices for the type of fur you would like to use. You can create a different look by using different types of furs.

The pattern can be adjusted for any size hand. In my video, I created this pair to fit a larger sized man-hand. With easy math, you can make this pattern from child size to an XL hand size. Have fun with this costume/prop accessory. It is perfect for so many designs – wildcats, bears, lions, werewolves, beasts, monsters, etc.

Here is the link to the hat which was the first part of this costume.

Crochet Tutorial: Beast Hat

In keeping with my costume theme that began with my Enchanted Rose Cape, I have finished designing Part 2: The Beast Hat. From the outside, he may appear menacing, but underneath is a heart of gold. He’s my perfect beast!

This beast hat encapsulates the fierce persona that one would like to portray in this costume. If you are looking to do the Beast from Beauty and the Beast, this particular hat is just the right way to achieve that!

 

Beyond the Beast, this hat has a lot of versatility! You can remove the horns, change the colors, change the ears to create your own adult hat in various animals such as a bear, a skunk, a panda, or the like. This is a very warm and heavy hat perfect for those winter days. Enjoy this tutorial and written pattern!
