Crochet Pattern for Edging

For this month, I plan on focusing on crocheting some edging and will be sharing lots of patterns with you guys.  There are so many uses for crochet edging.  Some of my favorites are adding edging on pillow cases, hand towels, and even skirts and dresses.  So hope you guys will enjoy these patterns as I have.

The first pattern on this series is this "Step Edging".  I've used this pattern to complete a baby blanket.

DIY Yarn Bowl

What do you get when you put together a bowl and a paper clip?

DIY Yarn Bowl
Saw a post on instagram with this technique and had to give it a try.  It's a glass container from Dollar Tree and a paper clip.  It works awesome.  and my yarn cakes fits perfectly inside. The frugal crafter in me is very happy.

Check out what others use as a DIY yarn bow.  I've compiled some images for you guys to check out on Pinterest.  I am all for recycling, re-purposing, and saving a buck or two.
