About Stephanie

Hello everyone. I’m Stephanie and I’m so happy to be the Yarn and Needlework contributor for Think Crafts. A friend taught me to crochet back in 2000 and I’ve been hooked on textile crafts every since. Knitting soon followed, then spinning, needle felting and sewing joined the team. I love making my own clothes and home accessories. Creating fun monsters out of sparkly yarn is my current obsession. I blog about my crafty creations at Twilly 23.

Ear Savers

By Yarn and Needlework Contributor Stephanie from the blog Twilly 23

Wearing masks can help keep us healthy but can also wear on our tender ears. If you find yourself cringing every time you slip on a mask to go to the grocery store, make up some ear savers. This pattern crochets up fast and easily attaches to the elastic straps on your masks. After sewing a fabric mask, crochet up an ear saver strip and slip it on. With the pressure gone, your ears will thank you.
