Snow Girl Bauble!

Remember my Santa Bauble? I still loved the idea of crocheting over an actual bauble! It's such a nice way to spruce up those tired old boring baubles! I went to many MANY thrift stores and charity shops to find the perfect second hand (usually plastic - at least those don't break...) Christmas baubles and came back with many MANY sacks of baubles for practically no money! 

And per usual I was inspired to make something for a special occassion: it's almost like I can't crochet something without knowing I will give it away... This time, the occassion was the Relief Society (which is the women's organization of my church) Christmas celebration. We all filled a small tea tray with things that said something about us personally. Each sister would then unwrap one of those presents and try to guess whose it was. And she got to keep the goodies ofcourse! It was so much fun and we really got to know each other better. 

One of the items on my little tray was this snowgirl bauble. She represented both Christmas ánd my love for my crochet hobby. Let's take a closer look at this little cutie!

I really enjoyed making this snow girl bauble! I used parts of the pattern of the Santa bauble for the top part and improvised the rest: the "skirt", nose, bow tie and hat. 

The sister that ended up with my tray is also an avid crocheter. She has made many presents for us sisters for Mother's Day etc. She proudly showed my little snow girl bauble hanging in her home when I visited her once. I'm glad this little creation found such a loving home!

Want to make your own? I'm thinking about writing out the entire pattern, so stay tuned! If you can't wait, try to improvise on the Santa bauble like I did.

Happy crocheting!
