Crocheting flowers….

I haven’t long been crocheting but now I’ve learned I really love it. The fact that it is so portable means I can crochet on the bus or train travelling to work, actually .

I started making these little flowers after watching a tutorial on YouTube. There are so many people out there showing you how to crochet flowers and leaves, try a few before you settle on one way, people crochet in different ways, the UK and USA have different names for stitches too.

I have purchased some plain cushion covers and napkins recently and made a couple of sets of  napkins and some decorated cushion covers using my crocheted pieces.

Here’s one of my cushions:-

I had a few ‘granny’ squares in my craft cupboard and decided that I could use these as little backings for my flowers.

I did three of these squares  4

Once I had the three squares ready, I placed them on an off white cushion cover and sewed them in place.
That’s it, all done. Here it is in situ on my garden chair…

Thanks for reading, back soon
