Simple Flower Pattern

Today, I would like to share a very simple and easy crochet tutorial. A lot of you may already know how to make flowers that are very similar to these, but for those of you who don't I am excited to show you how!!




So, lets get started. You will only need a few supplies to make these simple flowers.
Materials Needed:
-Any size crochet hook. I used a size H for my flowers. If you would like larger flowers, use a larger hook. If you would like smaller flowers, use a smaller hook. You could even use a tiny hook and crochet thread for a newborn embellishment.
-Worsted Weight #4 yarn. I like to use 100% cotton yarn when I am making flowers, but you can use any kind of yarn for these and they will be beautiful!! You can also use a more bulky yarn for a larger flower. This pattern has endless possibilities! I like to buy my yarn online at fabric.com, because if you spend $35 or more, you get free shipping! I usually spend at liest $35 :) I like to use Peaches & Creme Yarn, or Sugar 'N Cream Yarn .
Abbreviations:
ch: chain
sl st: slip stitch
trc: triple crochet

Instructions:
ch 4, join with a sl st to form a ring (or you can make a magic loop)

(ch 3, trc in the loop, ch 3, sl st in the loop) repeat 4 more times

Here is your first petal

When you are finished, you should have 5 flower petals. Fasten off, and weave in your loose ends.

I like to use these little flowers for a lot of different things. I sew them on bags, pacifier clips, skirts, backpacks, hats, scarves, shirts, and headbands.





But, my favorite use for them is to glue them onto a clip to make a cute springy hair clip. I buy my hair clips online at the Ribbon Retreat. Go visit them, they have so many amazing craft items that you can buy! There are quite a few really cute tutorials for fabric, and ribbon flowers on their website too. I will be posting pictures of a few that I have made soon!

You can get Snap Clips,


French Barrettes, and a lot more!

I always use these flowers on my Pacifier Clips. Have fun with them!

Notes:

The gauge doesn't matter so much for this pattern because you aren't making an article of clothing that needs to fit someone.  I do tend to crochet very tight (tighter than normal) when I am making amigurumi so that the stuffing doesn't show through.  But, if you want your t…

TUTORIAL: Doll Diaper plus Pattern!

This weekend I made diapers for my little girl's doll.  I probably made more than she needs, but it was so much fun to watch her face light up as I got each one of them finished! 
I designed the pattern to fit her Bitty Baby Doll.  But, I also realize that some of you may have a different size doll....  So, I made the waistband adjustable.  It may not fit all of your dolls and stuffed animals, but this will make it more likely to.


I wanted it to be a nice and tight fit so that we could fit the doll's pants over the diaper, and it worked out well!

Today I am excited to share the tutorial with you.  Here is what you will need: 1/4 yard or a fat quarter of cotton fabric.  Coordinating thread 1/2" sew in Velcro.  I have tried the stick on kind, and didn't like it.  It eventually comes off.  If you try to sew it on, it will gum up your needle and the needle will have to be replaced.  I highly recommend the sew in kind that is not sticky. Before starting, you will need …

TUTORIAL: American Girl Crochet Hat

Lately, I have been having so much fun making my girls clothes for their dolls.  My latest project was these cute crochet hats.  They fit nice and tight, and I love the way they look on the dolls.  I am sharing the pattern with you today so that you can make a few for your dolls too!

The yarn I used for this hat I purchased online from Fabric.com.  It is called Cotton Classic Yarn.  They have changed their website up a bit and I haven't been able to find it recently, so I am not sure if they are still selling it.  This is my favorite yarn for crocheting Doll hats, so I hope I can find some more in the future.
