Crochet Toddler Bracelets

Dishtowel Dress Idea and Pattern by Trey & Lucy
Striped Pants from Target (sz. 3-6M so they'd fit like leggings)
Crocheted Beaded Bracelet by ME!



Serenity loves to wear bracelets - what little girl doesn't, right? She's too young right now for any of those cute plastic toy bracelets to fit her - they just fall right off. Well, after seeing those rubber bracelets (like from the 80's) my friend's tween Bethany wears - Serenity started wearing elastic ponies so she can have "a bracelet like Bethany, Mommy!". She even puts them on her ankles! I thought about "dressing up" the ponies - kinda like they do with crocheted scrunchies and socks. It was a instant hit with Serenity! She loves her new bracelets! And since she liked it so much - maybe your little girl will too. They are simple and quick to make.

Since you are using a rubber hair band, you can use these as pony tail holders as well. :) Thanks for the tutorial!
