Introduction: How to Make Cute Crochet Scrapbook Pages
If you want to make a custom gift or you are just bored and inspired, this project is for you. There are countless pages and images you can make, but to get you started, I will show you how to crochet the Mandalorian/Baby Yoda page and the Ice Cream Bowl page. They are very easy to make, and are sure to be worth your time!

Some basic knowledge of crochet stitches
Step 1: The Mandalorian/Baby Yoda Page
First grab your 4.25 mm hook and your white yarn. Create a slip knot and chain 28. Next, double crochet in the second stitch and keep double crocheting until you each the end of the row. Now, slip stitch and turn. For the next 7 rows, double crochet in each stitch. At the end, you should have 8 rows of double crochets.
Congrats! You have officially made the page! Now we just have to add all the details on top.
Pick up your 3.5 mm hook, stitch marker (optional), and your light green yarn. Start by creating a magic circle and single crocheting in 6 stitches. Pull tight to close the circle. Then, increase (two single crochets) in every stitch. Next, single crochet in the first stitch, and increase in the next stitch, repeat this until you come to your stitch marker (or the end of the circle), this will bring your stitch count to 18. When you have done this, single crochet in the first two stitches and increase in the next (repeat), this will get you 24 stitches. Now, single crochet in the next three stitches and increase in the next stitch (repeat), at the end you should have 30 stitches. Chain one and tie off.
You have successfully made Baby Yoda's face! Now we have to make his ears.
Start off with your 3.5 mm hook and green yarn, (stitch marker is optional). Create a magic ring, but make it huge, because we will need a lot of space. Next, chain 3. After that, crochet 10 double crochets in the magic circle. Now, crochet two triple crochets, followed by 10 more double crochets. Pull tight to close the magic ring. Then, single crochet in the next 10 stitches. For the other ear, do the same steps, except that before you single crochet 10 times at the end, chain one and turn.
You are done with the ears , now we have to attach his eyes!
Grab your two 10 mm safety eyes and insert them into the face. I inserted mine into the fifth row, counting from the middle.
Next, we have to sew Baby Yoda onto the page. Take your dark green yarn and large yarn needle. Yarn the needle. Next, pin your parts onto the page. Now, insert your needle into Baby Yoda's face, preferably at the bottom. Now, work around the face, and branch out onto the ears, making a loop of stitches around his head. To add his nose, stitch underneath the magic circle and leave semi-loose. (Basically, don't pull tight.)
Yay! You have finished Baby Yoda and sewn him down! Now we have to make the Mandalorian.
Before you begin, gather your grey yarn and 3.75 mm hook, (stitch marker optional). Start by making a magic circle and crocheting 6 single crochets in. Pull to close, but only close it partially so that it makes a semi circle. Next, chain one and turn, then put two double crochets into each stitch. Then, once again chain one and turn, then crochet 1 double crochet into the first stitch, and 2 double crochets into the second. Slip stitch and tie off.
We've finished one part of the Mandalorian's mask, now we have to make the other parts.
Now, start off by making a slip know and chaining 5. Then, double crochet for 2 rounds. Finally chain 4 and tie off. Remember to make 2 of these for either side of the face.
Now it's time to sew the helmet pieces together!
Pin the semi circle at the top of the page (on the left side), and pin the side pieces on either side of the semi-circle, making sure that the chains touch the semi circle. Then grab your large yarn needle and white yarn, yarn the needle and sew the pieces down onto the page.
Congratulations! You have now finished the Mandalorian/Baby Yoda Page!
Step 2: The Ice Cream Bowl Page
First grab your 4.25 mm hook and blue yarn. Make the base or page of the project. Make a slip knot and chain 28. Beginning in the second chain from the hook, double crochet in every stitch. Next, slip stitch and turn. Then, for the next seven rows, double crochet in each stitch.
After you have finished the page, it is time to crochet the details!
Before you begin, gather your 3.75 mm hook, brown yarn, light green yarn, and peach yarn (stitch marker is optional). Create a magic ring and single crochet 6 stitches in. Pull tight to close the magic ring. Next, crochet 2 single crochets into each stitch. Then, crochet 1 single crochet into the first stitch, and 2 single crochets into the next (repeat). Now, crochet one bobble stitch into the first stitch, and slip stitch in the next (repeat 4 times). Do this with your brown yarn and your light green yarn too. After you have crocheted your light green ice cream, yarn your large yarn needle with dark brown yarn. Then, create stitches in the light green ice cream piece to create mini chocolate chips (we're making mint chocolate chip ice cream!). Add stitches to your pleasing.
Now we need to crochet a bowl to hold the ice cream!
Grab your 3.75 mm hook and any color of yarn to your liking (I used peach to make a waffle cone bowl.) Start off by creating a slip knot and chaining 5. Chain one and turn, then crochet 2 double crochets in each stitch. Chain one and turn, and then double crochet in each stitch. Once again, chain one and turn, then crochet two double crochets in each stitch. Slip stitch and tie off.
We have finished the details, now it's time to sew them all down.
Gather your large yarn needle and dark brown yarn. Thread your needle and pin down your pieces. Then, sew them all down. I chose to sew them all down, except for the bobble stitched ends, because I thought it would give the scrapbook page a bit more texture. Once you have done this, you are done!
And with that, you have completed the Ice Cream Bowl Page!
