Hi friends and welcome. This is my first attempt at blogging in a very long while, so bear with me! I've started this blog in order to get some of my craftiness out. No, not the sort of craftiness that has me pulling tricks on friends, the kind of craftiness that makes me churn out little bits of this and that that I have made with my hands. I have been a crocheter for going on 12 years now and have been scrapbooking when I get the chance for about 5 years. I just recently got a Cricut with the Sure Cuts a Lot software and have been unstoppable! I'm hoping to venture out into sewing after my birthday in May (I have asked for a Brother sewing machine). We'll see where else all my craftiness takes me. In the meantime...
I have made a mini crochet pattern for all of you out there who would be interested.
*WARNING* I taught myself to crochet and thus my technique is not perfect. I crochet tight. For example, if a pattern says to use a size H crochet hook, I use a J to get my gauge right. Luckily for this pattern, gauge isn't really important. I aslo use American terms.
Tiny Crochet Flowers
The flowers in this picture were made using embroidery thread using a size D crochet hook. I like embroidery thread because you only have to buy a tiny bit of a bright color. On the other hand, since it is made to unravel, I don't recommend it for beginners. These flowers can also be made larger or smaller depending on the yarn/thread and hook size that you use.
