I LOVE THESE!
Thanks to The Garden Bell for sharing her wonderful pattern and idea on her blog with us! These were so much fun. After some fiddling and cursing (just a little), I got the pattern down and breezed right through my second one. I did do the second one by making the entire circle first, weaving in all the ends, and then reattaching the yarn to make the petals. It worked better for me and my particular style. I hope to be making more of these to do some major stash-busting in the next few days. (The original pattern is for a pillow and can be found in THIS POST.)
The one with the red/multi yarn in it was done using the home-dyed yarn she made and sent me a while back. I love her idea of attaching one of these to the front of a gift bag. They are so pretty hanging on a colorful bag. You’ll see the ones she made in the first link above (scroll way down the page). Brilliant!
I see Pammy Sue mailing out some Random Acts of Kindness gifts soon! I’ve decided to stick with my own list of Followers to send gifts to rather than joining a group. I feel I’m being led to do this on a regular basis, so that’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to start getting rid of a lot of the crochet items I make that just sit around here only making me happy. (And, as you know, that is A LOT of items because I’m OCD when it comes to crochet. Heh-heh.) I’m sharing the love…passing it on…paying it forward…making someone’s day…putting a smile on a few faces. How can I not?
