Crochet Flowers

Emilia's hair is getting really long but it is still very fine. She looks best when it's pulled up on pig tails so that's how I usually style it. I don't have many bows that look alike so I've been wanting to make some more.

The other day I saw one of Emilia's friend wearing a bow with a crochet flower on it. That inspired me to make some for Emilia.

I found a great instructional video on you tube. Here is the link if you are interested in making some as well.

I would rate my crochet skills at basic and I picked it up pretty quickly. They really turned out cute!


The next day I decided to buy some more yarn to add some colors. As any knitter knows, the trouble with yarn lays in storing it. I didn't like the idea of keeping it in bags. Too messy and impractical.

Then I had an idea! I don't drink wine so the bottle rack in bar area of my house has been empty since we moved in. Now it is the designated yarn rack. I just used some kabob sticks to rolls in place since they are not long enough to stay on their own.

I have been wanting to make crochet flowers for awhile. I really shouldn't learn another new thing... my head might explode. I will try it for sure and let you know if it's a go. Oh, and I love what you did with your wine rack. I have always wondered what I would do with one if I ever had one. Crafts! That's a good idea
