Flower pin from scrap fabrics

It was great fun combining green and yellow together when I was coloring the leaves yesterday. The coloring page reminded me of the small scraps I had. Some of them are dark green, usually my last choice in my project. This time it’s the first choice…..sort of to get rid of….:P

Still in a “mini” mood, i.e. mood of small projects. Accordingly, the series of flower pins posted by Tatalina readily leads me to my own flower pin.

This flower pin is inspired by a crochet pattern from Annie’s Attic. Annie’s Attic has a section “FREE pattern of the day” and this exceptional crocheted flower was from that section back to more than 3 months ago. As I didn’t notice the pattern would be expired at the moment I found it, I just save the link in my bookmarks. It has gone when I checked the link the second time. 😦

The only thing I can found is the picture left in my temporary directory, nevertheless it’s enough to understand its structure. Counting stitches is my weakness, hence I’ve been considering to transfer it to a fabric flower for a while. This idea came up as soon as I decided to make a flower pin. The result is not too bad…I will post the tutorial tomorrow if the wireless connection is still working…:(
