Flower Power

I've been working on the crocheted flowers for the winners of the Celebration Giveaway and thought you might like to see them before I mail them off.

The first crocheted flower that my daughter is wearing is a pretty purple with a light polka dot center. The flower is attached to a hair clip that can be used in quilting but is commonly called a binding clip.


The next flower is a red and white with a black and white polka dot center. If you know me, you know that this is one of my favorite color combinations. I just LOVE polka dots.


This flower is pink with a multi color polka dot center. It also has a clip on the back.


This blue flower is the same one that is seen on the crochet clutch. I used a stripe for the center button. I've also attached a clip to this flower.


This teal flower has a monochromatic look with a teal on teal floral fabric for the center button. I've also attached a clip to this flower.


Here is a look at the back of the flowers. Some of you may have questions if you look closely.


They are NOT the traditional covered buttons you're used to using.

Are you wondering where I got them?

Does anyone know what they are called and where I might have gotten them?

Would you like me to share my best found secret tip?


Hmmmmm......


Should I?

Are you interested?


I'd be willing to do a whole post about them this week.

Just let me know if you're interested and I'd be happy to do that.

I could do a whole tutorial about them.

They are the coolest little product I've found.

Very versatile too.
