Safety Cone to the Rescue!
I was originally inspired to make a crochet safety cone because of a pin version I bought from Nut and Bee. First off, if you don’t know Nut and Bee, check out their site. Someone near and dear to me took to the pin, placed it on a messenger bag with the idea that it would protect from everything bad out there. (Would have preferred an infinite number of them!) A soft, more 3-D version seemed in order!

One of the first times I sold the safety cones on Etsy, it was a lot of 6 that was requested. The reason? She was buying them for a friend’s cubicle. A week or so after I sent them out, the friend contacted me with a very positive response and the subject line “Safety Cones Everywhere!” She writes: “I work in construction management and I have done lots of envrionmental work, so safety cones hold a very special place in my heart (i.e. I don’t get hit by cars, and you always feel safer when they are around). Looking forward to brightening up my office with the cute little cones!” Um, that’s adorable! And the thought of the six of them in an office fills me with glee. Yes, glee. More pics here.

A week or so later, someone else bought cones! 5 of them this time around, and for multiple friends. This woman is moving away and wants them to “stay safe” after she does so. How cute! I love the stories that often accompany Etsy purchases. It really brings a personal aspect to virtual shopping.
