Crocheted Flowers

This is a simple birthday card I made for Cheryl's birthday.  I won't tell you how old she is though.  The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up set.  The flower I crocheted myself after finding a tutorial on PTI's site.  See HERE.  I crocheted it with embroidery floss from when I used to cross stitch.  I still have a lot of embroidery floss and good thing I saved them cause now I can crochet.

These are some other flowers I crocheted with yarn and embroidery floss using 2 different basic patterns.  I gave this set to Sunghee after I got the Sizzix die from her.

I also crocheted these bunny cozies for my kids for Easter.  Cute, yeah?  The pattern is from Lion Brand Yarn's site.  See HERE.  You have to register to see the pattern but it's free and they have lots of cute patterns and some are very affordable to make.  So far I've been able to crochet a couple of small blankets and a little cap for my daughter.  Knitting looks neat too but haven't gotten around to teaching myself that.  And I still haven't learned how to use my sewing machine but I really like the look of cards that have some sewing embellishment on it.

That's it for today.  I still have a lot of projects to finish up.  I fell asleep too early last night after a long day running errands and going to my daughter's school early to find parking and a good photo spot for her May Day program.  It was very low key this year because of the furloughs cutting into their instructional time but still nice.  Have a great weekend!

Yes, thanks for not plastering huge numbers all across the front of the bday card. Nice flowers, you make me want to crochet...someday. I never really got past chain stitches...

Thank you so much for posting the link to making crocheted flowers with embroidery floss. I have been looking for instructions for a long time. I love the flowers you made.
