Denial: Crochet Mermaid Crown for the Renaissance Faire

It’s Renaissance Faire time! We are going this Sunday and I want a mermaid crown. I’ve been seriously considering my outfit options. I usually sew (I use the term sew loosely) or crochet something new. I start off in denial about how much time I have to make something as I almost always wait till the last second to actually start. But this year, I think I just want to wear something I already own. You see? No one is in denial here. Considering I only have three days before we’re going, I think I’m making a pretty smart decision here.

I decided my mermaid outfit can once again appear at the fair. However, I never really liked the head-dressing I originally made for it. Sooooo, that means I need to make a new crown/headband/tiara thing to complement the outfit. I see all the head shaking already. It’s only three days! But I can do it! Seriously, I’m not in denial.

I moseyed on over to my friend, the internet, and did a little search on crochet mermaid crowns. I’ve been drooling over photos on Etsy for a bit. Mainly, I was looking for inspiration. I was hoping lightning would strike me with some amazing (easy) idea on how to make one. I wasn’t finding anything at first, but then, I found a really pretty one that I thought I could emulate.

Freebie Friday – Pink Shells Bow Scarf

I was browsing on Pinterest the other day and spent way too much time exploring my interests. I just went on there to look for a flower pattern and got caught up in the recommendations they had for me. Going on Pinterest is much like going to Costco. My intentions are always good. Go in, get what I need quickly, and get out! But nooooo. I end up staying in there far longer than I intend. It’s the same with Pinterest. Go in, find what I’m looking for and get out. It never seems to happen that way. I get so distracted by all the neat things I find, when I look up and look at the time, I’m almost late for work!

On this foray into dangerous territory, I found this scarf and pattern that kept catching my eye. I don’t wear scarves very often so I’m not usually interested in scarf patterns but I thought this one was so cute I decided to share it. I think I’m going to make it but I’m already thinking up ways to change it! I can’t leave well enough alone 🙂
