Here are some crochet cherries that I made last night. I didn't use a pattern as I couldn't find one, but it was failry easy anyhow. I like cherries, so I made them for no reason, however, I'd like to make a bag and then just attach them to a bag.

i like em.. nice and easy



thanks for looking!

Nice!  I did something similar for a wrist purse I made for my daughter.  I'll have to wrestle it away to get a pic

could you find it in your heart to maybe write down a pattern of some sort? i've been trying to make cherries myself, but the leaves always look just plain weird  Grin

Cherries are just so cute, and yours are super adorable. They'd look great attached to the corner of a crocheted messenger bag!

How cute!  Are you going to embellish a bag with those cherries?  I think that would be really precious.
I really want to learn how to crochet but I can't figure out where to put my hook after I do the foundation chain!

lol no problemo on the pattern. it was devilishly easy.

cherries (make 2):
red yarn (i used sugar n creme cotton in red)
using the magic ring method, 6 sc into ring (6 sc)
2sc into each sc (12sc)
finish off

stems:
darker green (i used rhss but i can not recall the exact color)
attach to a sc in the top row of one of the cherries, chain 16, attach to a sc in the top row of the other cherry

leaves :
lighter green (i used rhss but can't recall the exact color for this either)
*ch 8, sc into 2nd chain from hook, sc into next chain, 2 sc into each of the next 2 chains, sc into next sc, 3 sc into last ch.
(Now you're going to single chain into the other side of the chain that you just did the sc's into, so you're kind of going around in a circle or rectangle. ) sc into next sc, 2 sc into each of the next 2 sc's, sc in next sc, 2 scs into last one (since there's already one there)*, chain one. from there, take the cherries with the stem attached. slip stitch into the 8th and 9th chain on the stem from one of the cherries then chain one, and repeat from * to * and finish off.

a variation to the leaves could be making one double chain instead of two single chains

if you make it, post the pic here so i can oooh and ahhh Smiley

SlickMariaVic , torrance & Rheatheylia, i was thinking of putting them in the corner of a bag Smiley great minds think alike i guess. i have seen bags embellished w/cute cherries just like that.
