I came here to post pictures of my crocheted bridesmaid bouquets, and I saw that someone else is knitting/felting theirs! Crafty minds think alike, eh? Wink

I came up with these for the bridesmaids:

They're just a simple circle done all in double crochet, folded over at the base. I used pearls for the center (pistil? stamen? haha, it's been too long since I've learned plant anatomy!) and wrapped the wire "stem" with floral tape, then wrapped the stems with blue ribbon. My bouquet is going to consist of white roses and white calla lilies (fake, not crocheted) and I wanted something similar but not too matchy-matchy.

I might play with them a bit more, but I quite like how they're turning out Smiley

I will gladly do personal ATC swaps!

I've jumped on the wist bandwagon
