Some of us are… dare I say it… non relaxers! Personally, I have to be doing something with my hands even when I’m relaxing or watching TV.
These petite crochet flowers are the perfect ‘no brainer’ creative project that are cheap, easy and very portable.
Now I’m no expert when it comes to crochet . . . in fact, I haven’t picked up a crochet hook since I was a kid, but these little mini flowers don’t really need to be perfect.
Every time I see vintage rolls of crochet cotton in my thrifting travels, I grab them . . . and now I have quite a large collection of sweet little crochet flowers made from gorgeous vintage coloured cottons.
I originally started making these mini crochet flowers when my dad was in hospital receiving treatment for cancer. My mum and I spent some long days sitting at the hospital and this was a totally portable project that fitted easily in my handbag and could be pulled out when needed. My collection of vintage cotton flowers continues to grow and has become my ‘go to’ project when I need to grab something to work on in a hurry. This project should come with a warning: Making vintage cotton flowers can become addictive!
