Doesn’t that sound incredibly uncomfortable? Fortunately I am talking about the flowery type of bloomer and not the kind worn as undergarments.
I haven’t been inspired to create any cards lately, in spite of having a few new stamps that need to be inked up, so I created a few more flowers. I was blurfing (blog surfing, technical term) the other day and came upon a couple of YouTube videos for crocheted flowers. So I whipped out my trusty crochet hooks, grabbed some yarn and followed along.
These are so simple to make and they work up very quickly. The video is here.
The first 2 were made with embroidery thread and the third one was made with Paton Grace yarn. On the 2nd and third ones I think I did 3 treble crochets instead of two, for a wider petal. She added buttons in the video and as you can see, I didn’t. Maybe next time.
This one is a different pattern which can be found here, and the video is here. I used the Paton Grace yarn for this one, too, but I will be making some with embroidery thread very soon. I think they would be prettier with either the thinner embroidery thread or using a larger crochet hook. This one looks a little bulky to me.
So that’s it for today – get out those crochet needles and make some for yourself. They make cute little embellishments for cards or even small gift boxes. They would be adorable on hats or purses, too.
YouTube is a wonderful resource for all things crafty. I have a channel – here – and you can subscribe if you like. I have quite a few videos saved there – everything from card making and crocheting to funny cat videos. I have categorized some of them, but many of them are not. Another thing on my list for “one of these days”.
