ok here is my flower i made :)
I know its not much .. but i had to start SOMEWHERE. I just admire people who create their own patterns, i just can’t get my head around it yet… but its coming!!
Im seeing now that i definitely know ow to change rows heights etc, and now im thinking i should have a go at some three dimensional . I mean i could just take the head of one pattern and the body of another as a start and go from there and then perhaps be more comfortable. The main thing i HAVE to remember is BE PREPARED TO MAKE MISTAKES!!! lol .. i am to much of a perfectionist. (which does make for god stitching)
SO here she is .. she’s quite gawdy but obviously the colours can change that. I intended it to be gawdy.
So as you can see its based on an irish rose, but doesn’t quite look like one.
The middle petals i’d like to see having more of a point, so that it looks more like a double lily opening. So the curled up bits in the middle being the centre of the flower and the two layers being the pointy lily like petals.
I have always been obsessed with flowers, so naturally when i learnt to crochet and i found out you could make flowers that was my thing for a couple of months :)
This is justa simple whip it up before bed flower, and of course a button would look great too. I have added a button to mine but im not happy with it, so ill post when i decide.
So if anyone would like me to post pattern, let me know. Enjoy! x
PS: having MORE stuff taken away today, so the crochet room is coming ever closer. :)
