I didn't know what to share this week. I made a vegetarian mousakka a couple of days ago and was going to share the recipe but since I am so behind in writing this post, I thought it would be easier to write up this idea for crocheted roses.
My friend recently bought some crocheted roses that you can display in a vase. I liked the concept but the actual roses looked a bit old fashioned for my taste (my daughter will tell me, "what taste"!) Anyway, I found a fun little pattern that gives some depth to the rose so here's what I came up with:
I had so much fun making these, that I got carried away with the pattern and made 12 of them!
The colors may be a bit bright since I used leftover yarns that I had in my yarn basket. I like the black/white or gray/white ones since they look a bit more modern.
I sewed a pin on the back of each rose so that you can pin it on a hat, or coat, etc.
If you would like to make some of these roses, here's the link to the pattern. I hope you have as much fun making them as I did!
Have a wonderful week and please remember to stop by Handmade Monday and see some great ideas from other crafters.
Wishing you the best,
