New craft addiction.......

I haven wanted to try to crochet flowers every since I saw this! I never could understand the written instructions then I found this awesome video tutorial on You Tube after watching it about 10 times it finally clicked, now I have a new crafting addiction (like I needed another)!

Anyway I bought some perfectly bright yarns....

They are so much fun to make!

The start to my flower patch collection

Now I am trying to decide if I want to attache these to the tops of granny squares or if I want to try and figure how to crochet the flowers in to squares.

It is crazy the amount of "how to" videos there are on You Tube I never thought to look here before, you can learn to make just about anything you want! All I did was type in crochet flowers in the search and got a whole selection of videos to pick from!

Have a Happy Day! Meg

LOVE them! I would totally sew them onto headbands for my little girl but man, I really don't need another craft!! :)

This is awesome. Thank you so much. I'm going to make these and stick them on headbands. Oh, I see someone else has the same idea. LOL
