I signed up for a few ornament exchanges this year, and decided on crocheting up a Santa Bauble. I debated on whether or not I wanted to add arms to this bauble, but I figured that if I added arms then it would look weird without a head and I knew I didn't want to add a head to it. Hehe. After a few minutes of brainstorming, here's what I came up with! I am very happy with it, and plan on making a bunch more to give as gifts this year. Materials: - Small Amount of Worsted Weight Yarn in White, Red, Black and Gold/Yellow - I used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn (colors links above) - I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook - #18 or #20 Tapestry Needle - PolyFil to Stuff (I stock up on mine from JoAnn's when it's on sale) Material Notes: Yarn Alternatives: Red Heart's With Love. PolyFil is very affordable and comes with a lot. Alternatively you can use cotton balls or yarn scraps. If using cotton balls, your baubles will come out more stiff, take more time for shaping and I caution you to watch how much you put into your bauble because it's very easy to overstuff. Time Spent: I was able to complete my Santa Bauble in about 30 minutes. Though this project has some techniques that aren't considered beginner friendly, I break down everything in this PDF making it easy to understand and work. PDF is All Photos version. It contains 7 pages, 7 photos and full written instructions. A Main Photo version is also available which contains 4 pages and 1 photo with full written instructions.

I began with needlepoint on plastic canvas (thank you Aunt Arlys!) about six years ago, making anything I could get my hands on or brain to think up, from masks for school plays to picture frames and small trinkets but recently (less than a year ago), I’ve gotten into jewelry making and working on my crocheting/sewing/etc. I currently craft full time. This is my true passion, and I am very grateful for your business, support and feedback! I chose the name Eye Love Knots in honor of the Burckhalter/Lindhorn family (my very close cousins). Our family has been affected by Retinoblastoma, a cancer of one or both eyes which occurs in young children. There are approximately 350 new diagnosed cases per year in the US and affect about one in every 15,000 births. Although children may be born with retinoblastoma, it is rarely diagnosed at birth. As a rapidly growing cancer, studies of the bones, bone marrow and spinal fluid are also performed upon discovery. If the tumor is contained within the eye, more than 95% of patients can be cured. For those children with tumors in both eyes, close to 70-80% of the eyes can be saved, although many of them need radiation therapy, or possibly even chemotherapy. Fifteen percent of every purchase made from me will be donated to aid in the medical advances and new discoveries on the fight against Retinoblastoma, blindness and other eye diseases. Donations go to the National Retinoblastoma Research and Support Foundation headed by Dr. Timothy Murray If you aren’t in need of any of my handmade treasures but would like to make a donation today, please email me so I can set this up for you.
