Hearts and flowers

Following the crochet roses (or croses as they’re known in my head :) )  that I made for the market; Caroline from Poppy posts http://poppyposts-blog.net/ asked if I made flat flowers that can be used in scrapbooking…..

and here is a gorgeous example of Caroline’s scrapbooking….

such a lovely way to use old family photographs :)

And I can see that flat little crochet flowers would work really well in scrapbooking, adding layers of texture….

Caroline said that she used ones made of cotton although I have always made them in wool in the past….

to decorate things I’ve made, like these slippers….

I’ve also made little hearts before that I’ve used on Christmas cards

this is the bigger version of the heart, but I also used the smaller version to decorate presents, hang on the tree and make garlands; to use in decorating toys and for applique….

like this little hanging heart (even though the crochet heart has been totally buried in blanket stitches here :) )

….but maybe these could be used to good effect in scrapbooking too.

Thanks Caroline for the inspiration :) I’m thinking about trying out different hearts and flowers now in cotton and finer lace – making yarn…. I’ll let you know how I get on….  and if they work out maybe I could send you some :)

  1. Ooooh, your crochet looks lovely. It is a skill that I have never mastered but it looks like you have! I look forward to seeing the results in cotton/finer yarns and I’m sure that there is a market out there for scrapbookers :) We like to add dimension and texture to our pages but struggle to file them in albums if the pages are too bulky. Have you come across the book “100 flowers to knit & crochet” by Lesley Stanfield? :D
