DIY: Mini Whip Cream

EN

Or you can call them ‘scrubbies’ but I use them to create whip cream for my crochet cakes and cupcakes! They also make great home decorations by putting them into a maison jar! Did I just inspire you to make them as a gift for your friend, mum, girlfriend..? I’ll say: go for it!


NL

Of ze worden ook wel ‘scrubbies’ genoemd en ze zijn bedoeld om je lichaam mee te wassen en te scrubben. Maar mijn versie is klein en dienen ze als toefjes slagroom op mijn gehaakte taartjes en cupcakes! Ook doen ze aardig als huis decoraties bijvoorbeeld in een leuke glazen pot! Ik zou zeggen: maak ze voor je vriendin, mama, GF!  Echt een leuk blij makerij c: 
 You need: Cotton yarn or wool, crochet hook (cotton = 2 - 3 mm, wool = 3 - 4 mm), scissor, needle
 
 
 
I've actually stuffed a bit of stuffing in it. 


 The Steps:

  1. Row 1: chain 11
  2. Row 2: skip first stitch and start with the 2nd stitch (see picture) and single crochet. Last 2 stitches will be single crochet decrease. You'll be using backloops from now on!
  3. Row 3: chain 1. Single crochet decrease (first 2 stitch). Then single crochet all the way. Last stitch will be single crochet increase. (see pictures)
  4. Row 4: chain 1 (always chain 1 as it will avoid shrinking). Single crochet increase in the 2nd stitch. Then single crochet all the way. Last 2 stitches will be single crochet decrease.
  5. REPEAT ROW 3 + 4 until you've made like 8-10 rows. You should see a leaning yet an even pattern in your crochet piece.
  6. Fold they way I did in the gif. image and seam it together. 
  7. Leave a long tail and cut it with a scissor. 
  8. Use a needle and yarn through the edge (see picture), pull and it will close the gap. 
  9. Do it the same thing on the other side. If you want a puffy cream, you can add a little bit of filling. 
Good luck!

  6. Those are so cute, and I love the scheme you got going on. I have my knitting needle and crochet needles packed up during summer. They look so cute and could be a great replacement for pom poms at the end of my scarves.
