If my last pattern doesn't work for you. Then IAmSusie's orchid link looks good.
Please show us your flower when you're done!

I know this isn't the flower featured on Suss's bag, but I love this rose by Megan Mills


Also, I made this bag before, and I attached a kanzashi (not sure of spelling) flower, made of the same fabric that I lined the bag with.  It looked great.

The center of this flower is actually leather, not crochet, and it's on the designer's site: (the whole applique for sale, I mean, not the pattern)

ecreations: I love the lacey center of your flower so much better, I'm going to try making it tonight.

I'm only guessing but made try sc about three rounds
ch4 sl st to make a ring
rnd 1: 11 sc into ring (12 sc)
rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (24 sc)
rnd 3: 2 sv in each sc around, except for last sc, do three sc in last one (makes 49 sc)
that makes a center then join on a new colour and try something like *1sc, 2 hdc, 1 dc, 1 double double crochet (don't know what you guys call them), 1dc, 2hdc, 1sc* for each petal (seven stitches for each petal, seven petals)

Hope that helps.  I haven't tested it but it should work.

Hi again,
I've tested my pattern and it doesn't work! Sorry! firstly the middle ripples due to over increasing. And also the petals are too rounded. If you make a middle, increasing till you have 21(?) then try
*ch2, 1dc, ch3, 1dc in same spot as first dc, 1dc, sc* for each petal 7 times around
Hope thats ok

edit: tried it, sorta works - not sure if it looks like what you want

OK, I had to try this out ~ I followed round one and two from the first set of directions quoted above, then followed the petal pattern from the second set.  I love this flower! (ecreations' photo was a lot nicer than mine, lol, but my flower is lovely in person. Also, pink.)

It came out about 4 and a half inches wide. I tried making another one using dc for the second middle round, and I liked that for giving a really big center, but couldn't find a way to get the petals to look correspondingly large. Not sure it needs it anyway. This one turned out a really nice size for most projects, I think.

Thanks ecreations!

OK, I came up with this version this morning ~ on the one I was trying to do using dc for the second round of the middle portion. Changing to pink, I added a row of sc, then did each petal over 3 stitches as follows:
from the first stitch: ch 4
into the second stitch: triple, ch 3, triple, ch 4, then sl st into the third stitch
sl stitch into the next one to begin again
Carry on around. I ended up with eight petals, but I'm sure you could fiddle it to 7 easily enough.
I like the big petals on this, I put it next to yesterday's to show the size diff.
Now I'm wondering how it would felt, being rather open. *wanders off to find wool*

ha ha, I'd forgot all about this! I'm glad you liked it and that someone actually used the pattern! Yours looks great, and so do your own versions.
