My take on crochet flowers


Have you seen those crochet flowers everybody is using on their cards lately? Well, I was thinking that since I learned to crochet as a child I could give them a try. I used very thin yarn/thread and just went for it. I am not good at following instructions for patterns and this is what I came up with just playing around. I did not want them to be too bulky and I think it worked.



To make those flowers took me maybe an hour for all of them. What ya think? No need to go and buy the expensive ones at the craft store, plus I got to use some yarn that has been sitting around for a while ;).

Ok, I really need to run now.

Hugs,

Sabrina

Wow, these are beautiful. I crochet, but only scarves and afghans. I can't do the detail stuff like these....

It took me ten years to make an afghan -- so I guess I'll be shelling out the bucks for the pre-made flowers. These are super -- you could sell them!!
