Video Tutorial: Easy Crochet Flowers!

Yes, it is easy! Even if you have never picked up a hook before you can make pretty flowers to grace you cards and scrapbook pages:

The above card is a thank you for my mom, and the one below is for my sister, everything was colored with my new Promarker Pastel and Muted blending kits:

I used craft thread for the flowers on the cards but you can use any type of yarn, embroidery floss or string you like. The stamps on the cards are from Stampin’ Up! and the pattern paper backgrounds and die cut swirl (cut with my cricut and SCAL software) is from lettering delights, they are having their dollar days right now (everything is $1 or $2 and they have some new cool freebies up too!) so you should check it out and they have a coupon code for $10 off a $25 purchase {and that is off the sale price!}, the code is :Royalty. The Dollar Days sale ends Thursday!

And now the EASY video-this is great for beginners!

Thanks for stopping by, don’t forget to check out the Lettering Delights Dollar Days sale going on til Thursday and be sure to use the $10 off coupon: Royalty.

As promised in the video here are links to some crochet basics and patterns:

The Purl Bee has great step-by-step photos and directions for basic crochet stitches, great for beginners or if you are a bit rusty :)

Nicole Heady posted this double crochet flower, you can stop at a single flower or build the double decker, very good photos!

Here is Shelly’s Crocheted butterfly pattern (it is so quick and easy-it is the one I use!)

And a whole thread at Splitcoast with lots of links to patterns for flowers!

And if you still want more you can find 100 free crochet flower patterns at All Crafts.

Here is a glossary of crochet terms. That otta keep you busy for a while :D
