Crochet Stitch Markers

Squitty and I were making crochet stitch markers today!  Because hairpins (aka, bobby pins) have a plastic coating, they won't snag the yarn (or Squitty). 
Start by splitting the hairpin in half.
Take one of the halves and insert the bead.  Make a loop at the blunt end to lock the bead in place.
Bend the pin around the bead and try to get the soft end as close to the loop as possible.
