I crochet from time to time when I am not paper crafting. I can barely knit or pearl a scarf, but I can crochet a mean flower. Two years ago, on our annual family trip, we made a ton crochet flowers. Then we decorated plain canvas tote bags with them. They turned out so flippin' cute.
Here are some of the flowers I crocheted.
I used different blends of cotton yarn (all from Knit Picks and my mother's stash) in a variety of pink shades. I've made so many crocheted flowers in my life that I don't even use a standard pattern anymore. I just make it up as I go. There are some awesome books full of crochet flower patterns and some great free patterns online too.
I made these crochet flowers for a project I will be posting soon.
