I was playing around with some plastic rings the other day and came up with these Mickey and Minnie embellishments. They can be used as a decorations on a gift, magnets, or even as a Christmas Ornament. They are very quick and easy to make.
|You need 3 plastic rings|
|Crochet around rings with black yarn (I used worsted weight)|
|Position the smaller rings like Mickey ears and stitch to larger ring|
|Add a ribbon & tie into a bow|
Edited to Add: I've been getting requests on how to make the keychains, so I am adding that information to this post. :)
The keychains were made based off of my Mr. Mouse coaster pattern, which is a free pattern on my blog and can be found here: http://whiskersandwool.blogspot.com/2011/06/mr-mouse-coaster-free-pattern.html
Instead of using the worsted weight yarn, I followed the pattern using size 10 crochet thread and size 7 steel crochet hook. I made two of the body pieces, then stitched on the buttons (or beads for Minnie). Then I attached them by holding the two pieces together and single crocheting around, lightly stuffing as I went. For the bottom of Minnie's skirt, I stitched a few shell stitches along the bottom while I was attaching the pieces. I then made 4 of the ear pieces and stitched two together for each ear, then stitched them onto the body. And to finish off, I stitched the keychain to the top of the head and added a bow for Minnie.
