Shutter Buddy Flower with Pattern

Camera tricks are sometimes necessary when taking pics of kids and infants and there are so many out there to choose from. One easy way is to have cute little "pets" on your camera lens! I made one just for fun (and to give to a friend of mine that's wanting start her own photography business). 

This is a really SIMPLE and QUICK project that will take less than an hour for the intermediate crocheter. So you advanced peeps will be able to whip one out in no time at all - but here's the great part - this pattern is also perfect for beginners.


  • Scrap yarn in the color of your choice
  • size I/9 5.5MM crochet hook
  • elastic hair band
  • yarn needle
  • scissors

Attach your yarn to the elastic hair band with a slip stitch and chain 1.

Round 1: 30 SC around the elastic hair band. Join with a slip stitch. Chain 1.

Round 2: Double Crochet in each stitch around. (30) Join with a slip stitch. Chain 3.

Round 3: **1 Double Crochet in the next 2 stitches, Chain 3 and slip stitch in the next Single Crochet. Slip stitch in the next 2 stitches. Chain 3. Repeat from ** around. You will end by slip stitching into the remaining Single Crochet. 

Tie off and weave in the ends.

There you are! A simple little camera buddy to have in your bag for taking pictures of little ones. These things can be made in any shape and character you wish. HERE is a Pinterest page that will give you some inspiration. Let your imagination run wild!

Peace and blessings,
