I have had links to this kind of crocheted flower, made directly into a button's holes, saved for years, but never had a reason to make them. Then, they popped up on the Pinterest page of my Angel Swap partner, and she mentioned that she liked wearing single hair clips, so no matching sets needed. YES! Perfect opportunity. Smiley I used the following pattern as a guide, although I made several adjustments for the size of my thread/how I wanted them to look: https://thecrochetcrowd.com/crochet-button-flower/

The tiny bow is made from this pattern: https://daisycottagedesigns.net/crochet-bow-tie-pattern/

For the big flower, I crocheted into the back of the main flower to add the second layer of contrasting petals. Each metal snap clip is covered with embroidery floss using a buttonhole stitch; I found the bright silver detracted from the overall design. All the decorations are also various embroidery flosses, and I got to use my favorite teeny-tiny antique crochet hook.  Grin

I'm so glad she enjoyed getting them! They were fun to make and not terribly complex, although rather time-consuming since I decided to cover the clips and all. Worth it!  Cheesy

Those look great! I love how you covered the metal clip part. Those things always get caught in my hair, that's a neat way to prevent it.

I'm not online as much as I used to be, don't panic if it takes a while for me to reply to things Smiley.

Thank you!! Yes, I tried a few different false starts when it came to covering the clips, but I'm happy with how it finally worked out. Smiley
