Rainbow Love Coloring Page

Rainbow Love- blank available for coloring #coloringpage

This is an idea I had last night and wanted to try. I hope you enjoy it because it's a technique that I want to play with a lot more. I like the rainbow coloring, but also look forward to seeing what other people will do with this simple, but intricate love coloring page.

So many adults who enjoy coloring, which is a good thing- this design will take some patience!

Interlaced Circles Printable Boxes


Interlaced Circles design
I really don't remember what was planned for this tiling background. I'd forgotten about it until last time I ordered a Spoonflower sampler and needed to finish it out.

I hope you enjoy it on these two printable gift boxes. Click on the images for a larger version, print on card stock, cut out, score folds, fold, glue!

Festival Bun Cover- Photon Yarn

Recycled Silk Bun Cover Pattern

I'm so wild for this yarn, and the long bohemian fringe of it hanging from this bun cover.

The bun cover is actually made in 2 parts. The cover is one, and the fall is the other, so you can wear it without the fall. The yarn is Darn Good Yarn's Recycled Photon Rainbow Sport Weight Silk Yarn.
(check out this bracelet pattern in the same yarn)

To make this festive bun cover you will need:

  • 2 thick no metal hair elastics
  • Recycled Photon Rainbow Sportweight Silk Yarn
  • Size G hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors

Stitches=

  • ch=chain
  • sc= single crochet
  • dc=double crochet
  • sl st= slip stitch
  • st or sts= stitch or stitches
  • repeat ** means repeat the instructions between the asterisks.


American terminology

Bun cover:
Ch 8, sl st to join
Round 1: Chain 1 loosely (counts as first stitch), 11 sc in ring, sl st to ch 1 to join (12 sts)
Round 2: Ch 5 (first dc and ch 2), *dc in next st, ch 2, * repeat ** 10 times, sl st to 3rd st in beginning ch 5 to join (12 spaces)
Round 3: ch 1 loosely, 2 sc in space, *sc in next st, 2 sc in space*, repeat ** 10 times, sl st to first chain to join (36 sts)
Round 4: Ch 5, skip 2 sts, *dc in next st, ch 2*, repeat ** 10 times, sl st to 3rd st in beginning ch 5 to join. (12 spaces)
Round 5: Repeat round 4
Round 6- Hold hair elastic against the last round, and single crochet over the hair elastic into the stitches on the last round to encase and attach the elastic. Sc in each stitch around, sl st to join. Break off, weave in ends.

Hair fall-
Cut 18 lengths of yarn twice as long + 2 inches as you want the fall to be. Working with 2 strands at a time, pull them through the other elastic and tie in overhand knot close to the elastic.


To wear it, you make your bun- I just twist a section of hair up and hold it in place while slipping the bun cover over, then hold the bun cover in place while putting the fall over it. Slip a nice hair stick through weaving it into your bun to lock it into position.


The bun cover above is made with Darn Good Yarn's Chiffon Ribbon, and I'm giving the pattern to them exclusively. Follow Darn Good Yarn and Shala's Beadwork and Printables on Facebook to find out when it's posted! (I'll also update this entry then)
