Crochet Mouse Ears

I’ll be joining a friend at her annual craft fair boutique in her home,  but when she asked, I didn’t have anything to sell. I knew I’d have to make some new items but what to make? I didn’t want to spend a lot of time crocheting products that didn’t sell and that I would have to store.

What to do? I made things I want for myself anyway or that the kids would like in the prize-box at work. Win win win for everyone.

I’ve been obsessed with Disney bounding and Mickey ears lately. I see all the cute ears when I go to Disneyland and imagine all the possibilities I could create with crochet. That got me thinking of headbands in general and I got to work.

I focused on kid friendly headbands that appealed to the kid in me as well.

I love love love the Nightmare Before Christmas and wanted to try it out.

Couldn’t pass up some holiday ears.

Felt like I was missing something so I added pompoms. I like it! Might add some gold to it somewhere, might use flowers instead of pompoms…or just leave it and move on. To be determined. 🙂

It wasn’t all about the mouse. Here are some other experiments. These are geared more towards my students.

All in all, I’ve been busy! And what I don’t sell I can use!

Disney Mickey Mouse Ears Crochet Ideas

Sometimes (always) I can become a little (a lot) focused (obsessed) about certain projects. We all remember the sweaters/coats I made. I just wanted to make one and ended up making three because I kept thinking the next one would be better. As it turns out, the first one is my favorite.

Then there was my Minecraft phase where it was all about Minecraft. That rolled into my Pokemon phase where I was making all kinds of Pokeballs. Oh, and the puppet phase. There are plenty of other phases I’ve gone through and right now I’m in the middle of my ‘Disney Mickey Mouse Ears’ stage. I have mouse ears coming out of my ears!

Let’s start at the beginning of the first ‘Ears’ phase. Awhile back, I crocheted my own hats to wear at Disneyland because we had passes. I wanted something unique and I made two for me and one for my hubby.

The first hat I made. This one was for me of course. 🙂

This one came second. The bow helped the ears stand upright.

This one was for hubby. He got many compliments whenever he wore it.
