pink petals

So after visiting my friend Sarah in California I became inspired to crochet again (a college fad I once had). Sarah crocheted Maya some really cute flower clips for her hair and exclaimed how easy they were. Once we got home Brett kept encouraging me to learn how to make the crocheted flowers and suddenly one day I was inspired!

I watched a you tube video for over 3 hours, and in my frustration I finally made something that semi-resembled a flower.... ugh, not what I wanted. So I kept working at in, and modifying the flower in different ways until I had crocheted something that actually looked like a flower! I couldn't stop there though, I had to go to Hobby Lobby and buy ribbon, clips, and a hot glue gun so I could actually make the flower into a clip. So here are a few I have made. I am still make some modifications. I think I will end up giving most of them away as gifts, although Brett wants me to sell them. I think I may also make some beanies and attach flowers to them. It is fun to feel like I have a hobby again.

I also made just a small clip with a bow... these need a lot more practice.


  1. Wow, I love them! Brett is right - you should sell them - like on Etsy. But then it might go from being a hobby to a chore.

  2. This inspired me to finally pick up the yarn and knitting needles my sister got me for Christmas (two years ago). Yay for hobbies!

  3. I'm seeing craft fairs in your future! I'd definitely buy them from you. :)

  4. Jenni! They're soooo cute. Great job :)


I love hearing from you, it always makes my day!
