Ok, this is so easy it probably doesn't deserve to have a thread, but I just got a digital camera and wanted to take a pic of a project.
I just got these pants, and they fit, but all my pants end up gapping a little at the back, and since I crawl around on the floor a lot at my job, I don't want to burn anyone's retinas with a bum-crack show.
So, last night I got fed up and crocheted this "belt". It's a strand each of homespun, cottontots and the dollar Target yarn in a chain. It doesn't need to actually hold up the pants, just keep them from gapping in the back.

<< crack free all day!

Thanks for looking!

That is genius! I love the colors.  I wish I could crochet. How hard was it? Wait, did you make a chain using each yarn and braid all the chains together? I can't tell...

I hate it when pants have that little "pookie" (as I call it) in the back. (I think it's acutally supposed to be "pooch" or "poochie" or something...) That is sooo cute, and it looks like something you would have to pay a lot for in a store. Great idea!

xcrunnergirl, it's so easy.  It's all three strands held together and then chained, which is what all crochet pieces start out as-a chain.  I believe anyone can learn to crochet a chain within minutes. 
stitchguide.com has video instructions.
I used a Q hook, which is the largest size, I think. 

Also, when I was changing into jammies, I put it on as a scarf, and it was pretty cute!

" crack free all day! "

mintbamboo, I work in a preschool.  Yeah, I guess most other jobs don't involve too much crawling, do they?

padray, that's the top part of a moon, it goes around in a circle, and has a face on it. You can see it's eyebrow. The middle part is empty because I originally wanted to have this poem that I loved in the middle, but at the time didn't have enough money and then it hurt so bad there I never wanted to finish it.
I have a lizard on the chub of my hip and that one didn't hurt at all.

greeenteagem, thanks!  I try really hard to not give any free shows. I don't want to go back to high pants either, though!
