Lacy Crochet Flower Tutorial

Today I have a lacy crochet flower tutorial to share with you! I love making little flowers, and love the lacy center in these! They are really quick and fun to make, so you will soon be surrounded by a pretty pile of flowers! IMG_0490.JPGRound 1

1. Begin with a magic ring. Work 12 sc in circle. Here is a great tutorial for making a magic ring.

Round 2

2. Chain 3, skip next dc. Slip stitch in next dc to form little loop. Continue until you reach last ch3DSC_9562DSC_9565

3. For the last chain 3, you will instead work one chain and the connect to the beginning ch with a double crochet (the starred stitch in the picture below). This allows you to have your hook in the right position for the next round. DSC_9569_FotorDSC_9572

I just fastened off after the third round and joined with a new color.IMG_0493.JPGThere are so many things you can do with these little flowers! I love using little flowers as coasters. I also love making long flower garlands. All you have to do is chain your flowers together. They are great decorations and make great gifts!

Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015!

Happy New Year! I am so excited for 2015! I had a great 2014, but I love the excitement of a brand new year. I like setting new goals and looking forward to new experiences. I feel like there is so much potential in a new year, and that just makes me excited!

One of my favorite things this past year has been blogging. I wanted to start a blog for so long, but I never had the courage to actually do it. I finally found that courage and started this blog last January. It is almost a year old! I have really enjoyed working on this blog over the year. I think it helped me step out of my comfort zone and I am thankful for that. I also love that I can look back at the projects I completed and I love sharing them with you! Here are a few of my favorites from 2014!
