A Beautiful Combo ~ Crochet & Flowers πŸ’œ

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• Good to see you! πŸ˜ƒ

I started a new project…yeah, I know – too many hooks occupied already around this house 😝 But what’s one more, right?! πŸ€“

Plus, I have a pretty good excuse. I had to at least start it before the picture in my mind is lost forever. ☺️ See, this morning, while watering my hydrangeas – that took a while…they’re very thirsty these days because of the heatwave 🌞 – so as I stood there admiring the pretty flowers, the picture of a cute boho purse popped into my head. How delightful would that be? 😍

I started immediately…playing with various size hooks, different stitches, and came up with these 


They do look somewhat like Hydrangeas, don’t you think? There will be 3, 4, 5 petal blossoms – just like on the real-live plant. πŸ™‚

Now I’m trying to figure out how to connect them…

Crochet didn’t look right. Nope, no pictures – it really wasn’t great. πŸ˜•

I tried sewing them together….which would work, but they’re too close together – so you can’t see where one flower ends and the other one begins. πŸ€” 

Wait…now I have an idea! Maybe I’ll do a multicolored bed of Hydrangeas! Hmmm – let me think on that. I’ll let you know. 😊

So far the prettiest solution seems to be needlefelting. Can you see a piece of green woolen material as the background? Have to try it!

 I only have grey or red right now…but let’s see 


What do you think? Needlefelted, with a bit of the background showing? That might work! πŸ˜ƒ

Thanks for visiting and showing interest in this little project! πŸ€— I’ll keep you posted. 

Tomorrow is WiP Wednesday – I hope you’ll be back so I can show you all the other projects. πŸ˜‹

Until then πŸ’•

      Thank you, Tami 🌸 Agreed! πŸ˜€ It’s great when the inspiration leads to a design that actually works out 😏 At first I wasn’t too thrilled with the grey…but the longer I look at it the more I like it 😁
