Do you recall my post on Friday, the "B words" one?
Do you remember the last B word?
The little Buttony crochet something or other?
Well today, I am sharing more of that.
This is my latest passion :: teeny tiny flowers and leaves.
They are my own design.
They are quick and easy to make.
They entice you to sit for just a fleeting moment and whip one up.
Just one more in another colour, to join the rest.
It'll only take a few minutes.
Well, yes in a moment after I've made just one more flower.
And what does one do with a heap of teeny tiny flowers and leaves?
One admires them, enjoys their very teeny-tinyness.
One can arrange them in different formations.
One can line them up, create pretty flower posies.
But hold on, teeny tiny flowers are very pretty, but wouldn't they benefit from some buttony goodness??
Should I go and get my button tins?
Oh how i love these little discs of coloured plastic!!
Yes, yes, yes, buttons and crochet flowers are so very very good together.
I have an idea to make a brooch for myself.
I should be cooking dinner, but no, I have to make this instead.
Have to do it immediately.
I crochet three teeny tiny flowers from Rowan cotton yarn.
Select just the right coloured buttons for the centres.
Crochet 3 teeny tiny green leaves.
Stitch them to a circle of green felt, in posy formation.
Stitch a brooch pin to a smaller circle of green felt.
Stitch the smaller felt circle to the back of the bigger felt circle.
A Crochet Flower Brooch is made!!
I leap, I jump, I run up and down stairs.
I show the Little People what I have made.
They ask me for the unpteenth time when will dinner be ready.
They are hungry.
They don't care for pretty, flowery, buttony goodness.
But I do.
I care for it very much.
I pin my hand made brooch to the lapel of my scrumptious Boden Coat.
I wear it with pride and joy.
And I think of you my dear blog-readers.
I think that you might like this brooch.
I think that you might like the pattern for the teeny tiny flowers.
And the teeny tiny leaves.
So you can make your own.
So I sit and hook and write and photograph for you.
And the pattern will be in the usual side-bar place later on this afternoon.
Have a wonderful leapy, jumpy, inspiring day!
Edited to add :: the Teeny Tiny Flower pattern is now in the left sidebar, listed as a Page. Go on, you have to try these, it'll only take a teeny tiny moment :o)
