Hey there, I've been planning to make something like this for a while and here it is to share with you, I'm pleased with the way it turned out and looks ever so pretty around my bed:
 
 
Vine: (4.5 mm hook)
 
Make a chain to your desired length; I made it about 200ch because I wanted it nice and long.
 
Sc in next 2 st
 
Large leaf:
Ch 12, sl st in second chain form hook, sc in next 2 st , dc in next 3 st, trc in next 3 st, dc, sc and sl st in same space, ch 1
 
work along other side of 12 ch
 
sl st and sc in same space, dc, trc in next 3 st, dc in next 3 st, sc in next 2, sl st, ch 1, 12 sl st down the back of the leaf to join to main foundation chain.
 
Sc into chain and in the next 3 st
 
Small leaf:
 
Ch 6, sl st in 2nd chain form hook, sc in next 2 st, dc in next, sc and sl st in same st, ch 1 and work along other side of 6 ch
 
sl st and sc in same space, dc in next, scin next 2, sl st, chain 1, sl st 6 down back of lesf to meet foundation chain, sc to join to ch and sc in next 3
 
Repeat, alternating between the large and small leaf and repeat process up the other side of the foundation chain to make it nice and thick.
 
Flower: (3mm hook)
 
Colour A
 
R1 6sc in ring
R2 (front loops only) Ch5 sc in 2nd chain from hook, hdc in next, sc in next 2, sc to join, repeat untill you have 6 small petals
R3 (Change to Colour B) 6sc in back loops of round 2
R4 Sc, ch 3, repeat untill you have 6 loops of ch 3
R5, (in each ch 3 space) 2dc, 2 trc, 1dt, chain 3, sl st in 1st chin from hook, 1dt, 2trc, 2dc, sl st (repeat untill you have 6 petals) FO
 
Arrange in any way you like, the pattern is a little bit fiddlly but worth it for the end result

Oh My Word!!! This is exactly what my bed needs. With little pink and white flowers....It's just too cute for words.
I could have never thought of this myself. Where did you get the idea?
