Thank you, I'm so glad you all like the earrings =) I love wearing them to work. Post earrings are the best.

They were a little labor intensive, taking a few hours to do, but it's not that bad. Especially since I was unemployed at the time!

I just wanted to include a link to the tutorial I used that taught me how to make Dorest Buttons. All I did after that was hotglue posts to the back. I have also used Dorset buttons to accent hats I've crocheted before, so I've found a lot of uses for my buttons.

Here's the link!

Thank you all! Unfortunately I don't have any in progress pictures, but next time I make some I will be sure to take pictures, or you can just go to the tutorial I'm posting below. The orange ones do look like orange slices to me. I really like using variegated embroidery thread, it gives the earrings a more trippy look.

All I did was convert this awesome tutorial I found online for Dorset buttons:


It was easy as adding a little hotglue or a little extra yarn to convert them to earrings.

Also, I believe to save the time and aggrivation of dealing with looooonnnngggg strips of embroidery thread, I crocheted the thread around the metal hoops instead of using the wrapping method described in the tutorial at the link.

I crocheted a large and small amigurumi brain slug. I used the small one to attach to my Turanga Leela costume last Halloween. Hope you enjoy!

These are just larger versions of the Dorset post earrings I posted in another topic. These ones dangle instead. I made these by wrapping and weaving embroidery thread around metal hoops. I hope ya'll enjoy!

(Here is a link to the tutorial I used for those interested):

I made these earrings by wrapping embroidery thread around hoops (either metal or plastic) and then weaving the thread. I then hot-glued posts to the back. I'm including a variety of pictures because I've made them in a few different colors. I hope you all like them!

(Here is the tutorial link on how to make Dorset buttons, for those of you interested):

You did a great job! I love how the hat has gaps in it, so you can see your hair. I also love how the hat is kind of slouchy and has your hair tucked in it. That style is so cute. Also the color just pops! I would SO wear this hat.

That is so cute! I did the same thing after I got my droid, but mine is super simple, just hdc in backloops, but no closing flap. That is such a good idea to use bobble stich for cushioning- I'm going to have to make another one with that method. And I love the addition of the wooden button; it's kind of rustic looking to me and I love that!

DROPS really does have a lot of nice stuff. You did a great job, the color looks really nice on you too. It's a shame about the sleeves, but your idea of slip-stitching sounds like a good way to improve the armholes Wink
