flowers



I mentioned in the last post that I spent the weekend crocheting. I had a blast of inspiration. In my mind I kept seeing large flower pins. Do people still wear these? I don't know but they sure were fun to make! Some of the materials used: lace weight mohair, orange thrifted button, and star sequins.


The tender heart back of the yellow flower. Red wool felt sewn to blue/green/yellow silk yarn. It looks nice without the pin but how will it stay up without it?


Mohair, alpaca, sequins, bead, ochre felt


mohair, wool, sequins, felt, button


cashmere, button, tweed, mohair, sequins


angora, tweed, button, sequins

All pins are about 4".

The first and the last ones are particularly endearing to me. Great work Kat. Maybe I too should pick up a hook sometime!

Thank you! Making these has been super fun, one of the few times that me and crochet got along. But now I'm hooked haha.
