I started those little squares in 2010 (yes, 2010 …) and maybe I needed a blog to finally confess this will NEVER be a blanket. NEVER. Each flower square measures an inch …
But what am I going to do with them? Greeting cards? A mini scarf? A border of some sort? Or yet a baby blanket with the flowers spread out randomly? What color and how? I don’t know. What would you do? Suggestions are highly appreciated …
I’d organize them on canvas, glue them down and hang them as art!
I actually really like the art idea, you could easily stick them to a canvas of frame them. They are so lovely. You coud do loads with them , they’d be lovely as part of a headband, or you could make them into brooches simply by stitching brooch pins to the back.
CrochetConcupiscence – how do you come up with an idea like that?! I would have never thought of art! StichScience – Thank you for picking this up and even expanding it.
… A teacher would probably have me write “Concupiscence” 50 times on the chalkboard … Sorry Kathryn for misspelling your name in an earlier comment.
It would also make a nice pillow case.
Cute little handbag?
http://bit.ly/REfnMv – you made me google for crochet handbags 🙂
I love the canvas idea for them, and I totally understand not wanting to make them into a full sized blanket! Such tiny squares would take forever to sew together, much less make enough of them and sew in all the ends! Another idea: you could sew them into cubes and stuff them and use them as Christmas ornaments next year!
Hannah, you have ways to make me laugh 🙂
These are so pretty! They would make a gorgeous scarf.
I would grab a lovely coat and sew them around the collar. x
where did you find the pattern for the squares? as I can imagine a Jacket made out of them!
I started out with simple flowers (see my flower blanket post) but had trouble attaching those flowers to one another. That’s when I first thought about flowers on squares. The ones you like were the outcome. Hence, there is no written pattern (yet).
LOVE the comment.. “YET” would love to have a pattern! would be my new crochet addiction lol
Midnight in Germany and I MUST go to bed … However, I hate to keep you waiting. So I googled (sp?) and found a pattern that looks pretty much like mine: http://bit.ly/XVzDcc – The petals seem to be smaller (at least to my tired eyes) and the square is bigger but it should be easy to adjust. What do you think? Have a good night …
It is close 🙂 albeit yours are much prettier! I think it is close enough that with a few stitch changes I can pull it together! thank you so much! – btw.. what part of Germany are you from? Some of my family history is in Germany!
I am glad you’re able to work with it! And if ever you need help with family research let me know (I live in Berlin).
AWESOME!! thank you so much! I sure could use some help there as I can’t read German 🙁 is there any way I can email you the information I”m looking for Off of here? please and thank you!
