Hello! I believe this is my first time posting on the crochet part of craftster! Lately I've just been obsessed with cute crochet flowers, so I found a video tutorial online (I seem to have difficulty with written tutorials, for some reason) and decided to try it. Now I can't stop making them!


Group shot!

I'm using them either as brooches:


Or as means to make my hair look prettier:

(I apologize for the blurry photo!)

Anyone got any other suggestions for uses? I'd love to hear what you guys think!

So pretty!

After seeing the sizing pic on the red one, the varigated purple must be super tiny! I'd go blind working on something that small. lol

these are super cute and make me wish that i understood the wonders of how to crochet  :-) 
i bet they'd look really nice if you wore a few of them in one bunch on your shirt, like a pretty little bouquet. 
also, if you have some nice flats, you could pin one on each and they'd really make the shoes look unique.

I, also, love making crochet flowers. And yours are beautiful.

They have lots of potential to be added to handbags, hats, scarves, maybe even earrings!

Have fun with them!

Oh wow! Thanks for the great feedback you guys! I was a bit insecure since this is the first time I've done anything crochet related in a while. I love all the suggestions you've given me, specially sugaree's idea of pinning them to flats! I also really like joybilee's and endlessxhorizon's  idea of making jewelry, maybe I'll try making a necklace out of them.

Also, Ruby Copperhead, the video is in Portuguese, but I believe that people that are more experienced with crochet will be able to follow the tutorial easily, regardless of the language. Here's the link!

Believe it or not, if you make these in dishcloth cotton they make GREAT reusable make-up removers!  Since they go so fast you can crochet a ton of them and just toss each one in the wash as you use it.
