You make felted wool flowers of course!!
I have been making baby shower gifts (tell you more about that later) and had a scrumptious piece of this felting yarn left over. I played around with it a bit and decided I should crochet it into a edging for some thing, not sure what, but hate to just toss it!
I then felted it in the washer with the shower gifts I made and it came out ready to swirl and sew into this flower! I think it looks rose-ish.
Here is the pattern if you are interested in trying this out yourself.
Crochet a chain…make it as long as you want, since you re going to felt it it can be any length. Use any size crochet hook, I used an H and I used Bernat Felting Wool Yarn. I love that stuff!
Single crochet in the third chain from your hook, chain 3, *skip one chain and triple crochet in the next chain, chain 3, skip one chain and single crochet in the next chain. Chain 3 and repeat from the *.
You can make it as long or short as you want. After felting my project was about 36 inches long. It was really quite easy!
That is so awesome. I think even I could do that! It would make a lovely brooch wouldn't it!
What a great scrap busting idea!
I love the yarn. How completely beautiful is it and how completely genius is the upcycle! RThank you for linking up to Upcycled Awesome! I really appreciate it.
Hi there- found you through the Handmade Tuesday hop and am a new follower. I've been doing some yarn projects myself and Can't wait to try your pattern out. I've never made a flower. I hope you have time to follow my life in South Africa by http://withoutcomplexities.blogspot.com
Have a great week!
This is so beautiful! I might just have to take up crocheting!
Oh I really like this idea!
So cute! Thanks for linking up to "It's a Party"!
Ellen, your felted wool flowers are beautiful and are all the more special and artful because of the way they are crocheted before being rolled into flowers.
Thank you for being a part of "A Little Birdie Told Me..."!
