Crochet Flower Garden
Last Christmas, with my new found interest in all things crafty, my mother-in-law and sister-in-law showed me how to do crochet. I have always loved the look of granny squares and my mother-in-law was patient enough to take me through making one step by step. My sister-in-law showed me how to make fillet stitches.
When I returned home from the holidays I would fiddle with crochet from time to time but still hadn't made any substaintial project yet. Now I wouldn't call these crochet flowers anything substaintial really but they feel like a completed project on their own and have been so much fun to make.
I even turned a few of them into hair ties for my lunch buddy!
These flower patterns came from 100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet. An excellent and inspiring little book that not only includes flowers but little bugs, butterflies, leaves, fruit, and vegetables too!
