Thank you, all! Smiley

They are actually easy to make, once you get the hang of the pattern. The only issue I have with them is that there are too many yarn-endings to finish off. Cheesy

Hope you all try to make them as well. It's great fun!

I think I've gone insane! Or at the very least, I'm beyond obsessed. I've made several pairs of high-top tennis booties, and I keep making them.. and I can't stop! I'm in love with the pattern and the booties are easy and quick to make.

So here's what I've done so far!

If you've made similar booties, I would love to see them! So link me up!

Thanks for viewing!

Edit: Also, if anyone wants the pattern, I used this one: http://crochet-mania.blogspot.com/2009/05/baby-high-top-booties.html with a few changes of my own. I attached the toe top part differently, making it more embedded and the shoe less round at the top (I attached it a bit below the stitches, not directly on top of them). I also made a backward single crochet stitch around the edges of the ankles. And instead of going through both loops on round/row 4 of the sole (where the ankle part connects to the sole), I only used the back loops in my single crochet stitches, so as to make a sharper edge around the sole. Hope that helps, if you want to try them out!

Hi all!
I recently made, what I think is, the perfect crochet rose. I was happy with the rose, but I was hoping to add a few leaves to it. The problem is that all the leaves that I've googled, end up looking horrible. So if there's anyone out there that knows a great pattern for a crochet leaf, I would be more than grateful for any and all help!

I'd also hope that the pattern looks good on rather thin yarn, and it would be somewhat robust, and not "lacy".

Here's a link to the rose I made: http://katicrafts.wordpress.com/2010/06/20/the-perfect-crochet-rose/

Thanks in advance! Smiley

That's amazing! Thanks for sharing!
I was so inspired I had to try it for myself (thank you for the tutorial links).

I didn't have any nice paper around the house, so I used pages from a phonebook instead.
My kusudama can be viewed here: http://katicrafts.wordpress.com/2010/06/18/kusudama/
I also linked this forum post to my blog (hope that's ok!)

I love the flowers! Nice job. Smiley

Recently, I tried to find the perfect flower pattern.. I attempted a few, mainly focusing on "3D"-flowers (such as these: http://katicrafts.wordpress.com/2010/06/06/crochet-flower-pinsbroaches/ ) but I was wondering if anyone has any great ideas for crochet flowers, mostly for accessories such as broaches or pins?

Thanks for sharing!

Great job! I agree with some of the previous comments - crochet bags are usually not my favourite, but this particular pattern is very cute!
