Free Crochet Pattern: Mama's DC Earrings

Mama's Disc N' Cross Earrings
Mama's Disc N' Cross Earrings

It's such a wonder how a simple crochet disc trimmed with a bit of color and a silver cross could look so lovely as a jewelry! This is a very simple crochet project that you can give as a gift to a fashionable loved one. Click here for all my FREE CROCHET PATTERNS.

(I named it after my mother because I made her cry the night I made this. I made it known to her the heartaches I had considering how differently she treated me and my other siblings, a case known as Middle Child Syndrome. I felt that it probably hit her hard because she never thought I felt that way about how she did things. Don't get me wrong, my mom is a good mother. She just wasn't as fair. It must be hard to be fair when you have 5 kids to attend to. It's so easy to have a favorite.)

Hello Amy! You are so lucky to have a mom who can love you equally. Thank you for everything you said.

Now that I'm older I realized that my happiness is up to me, not my mother, nor my own kids.

Hi,

I just wanted to say that I am the third child of seven and my mother doesn't have any favorites. We've never felt like any of us were better in her eyes than the other, even though we've had our moments. I'm sorry that you have felt that way; I can see that it would hurt. And I don't mean anything mean, I just wanted you, and others, to know that just because you have more than the average amount of siblings in your family it doesn't mean you're bound to have favoritism.

By the way, your earring patterns are awesome. I'm totally inspired.
