Those are beautiful! Do you use them all yourself, or are they available? (wink, wink!)

did you use a pattern or are those freehand?  I've  been trying my hand at free hand flowers and failing miserably.   Yours are GORGEOUS!

Hi all! Yes they are all free hand. I don't use patterns for anything, just make it up. I love trying different shapes and textures and especially color!

these are absolutely stunning!
you did a fantastic job. I first thought they were crocheted boquets by the thumbnail, but then saw them, and thought "pretty corsages; they'd be great for the guys in a wedding with non-floral boquets"

I think you could totally market these Smiley

Absolutely gorgeous!  Shocked  I haven't read all the comments you've received, so this may be a repeat idea, but these would also look fabulous on barrettes for your hair.  I could totally see a wedding party decked out with these either as brooches or barrettes!  Amazing work!  Congrats!

Great idea! I hate throwing anything out. I've even used scraps of yarn for stuffing. But this...this is genius! You should take some to a boutique and see if you can sell them!
