When thinking about what to make with my yarn tasting kit, I couldn’t shake the idea of wanting something small and quick. Plus, with this extreme heat we all seem to be experiencing here in the US, small fiber items feels “just right”.
Enter easy crochet flowers! These work up so fast and can be made as big or as small as you want them. Plus, you can use them in so many fun ways. I attached a pin backing to mine so that I can attach it as a brooch but I also love it as a key chain, hair tie, etc. I love these crochet flowers and all their uses!
