Recently, when one of my oldest girlfriends (who I have known since kindergarten), asked me to crochet her some little flowers for her wedding, I didn’t have a clue what to crochet.
I haven’t crocheted flowers very often, but then I remembered that I made some cute roses before, for my tote bag with crochet flowers, and I really loved how they turned out, so I decided to use that pattern (found in a Japanese craft book) again.
The flowers are actually quite small, only 2.5 cm (1″). I made them with thin crochet thread for doilies. I think that I used every possible color that I had because I wanted the roses to be colorful, playful and happy, which I also wish my friend to be and feel in her future married life.
When I finished all the flowers, I made these little leaves (I found the pattern somewhere on the Internet and adjusted it a little), then sewed the roses on the leaves. At the end, I just attached brooch pin backs, and the little crocheted roses became brooches for my friend’s wedding guests.
So, once again it showed how miscellaneous and useful (not to mention creative and beautiful) crochet can be. That’s only one of the reasons why I love it so much!
