11 steps to crochet a mirror case
Total Time: 40 hours
Hook air loops of white yarn
First measure the width of the mirror with a ruler and remember this. Hook four air loops of white yarn and hook them into a ring.
Crochet a circle of white yarn
Crochet two rows of columns without a Cape, adding in each loop. Also crochet the other rows with the same columns, but make additions less often. In the 3rd row make additions in every third loop, in the 4th row make additions in every fifth loop, etc. The main thing is to make sure that the crocheted disk remains flat and does not bend at the edges.
The diameter of such a circle should be equal to the diameter of the mirror + 0.5 cm. Extra half a centimeter is needed to make the mirror fit freely in the organizer.
Crochet ears for a bear
When the base is crocheted, make white bear ears. Mark two points where the bear’s ears should be located. Crochet the columns without a Cape, not reaching 2 loops to the first marked point. Insert the hook into the marked loop and make 7-8 columns with the Cape. Then fix the ” fan” with a column without a Cape.
Crochet the edge of the ear
Turn the crocheting and crochet one row of columns without a Cape around the edge.
Flip the crocheting
Repeat the same steps on the reverse side.
Work with the second ear of the bear
Crochet the second ear in the same way as the first ear.
Crochet the second circle and connect it to the first circle
Crochet the second circle, but without the ears. Attach two circles to each other and they should be placed face up. Then crochet the edges of the two circles together. Start from the end of the left ear.
Finish crocheting two parts of the organizer
Finish crocheting at the beginning of the right ear.
Make a hole in the organizer
You will get a hole through which you can put the mirror in the organizer.
Make a bear’s eyes and nose
Cut out the nose and muzzle of the bear from pieces of black and white felt and sew them to the circle with ears. Sew beads instead of eyes and a decorative bow in the chin area.
Make a frame for the organizer
Crochet the edge of the organizer with red yarn in columns without a Cape.
The mirror organizer is ready.
