birthday makes

another run on birthdays at the moment
so Lucy at Attic24 has come to the fore again
with her handy and quick

i whipped a half dozen up on Friday evening
adding hair clips to the back and buttons on the front

my variation is that i only used dc's in the petals
which creates the even petal edges rather then peaks

for brights I've used an 8ply wool and a 4mm hook

heaven help me when it comes to boys birthdays 
I'll be sunk !

anyone know how to crochet cars ?


  1. The flowers are lovely for little girls :))
    I have a flat pattern for cars.. they belong on a cotton blanket:)

  2. Nice flowers. I like the rounded petals, and they'll make lovely hair clips.

  3. Thank you thank you thank you. I have trawled and trawled looking for a flower pattern that I liked. This is perfect. With all my years of crochet I tried to work out a pattern on my own and had a mega fail.

  4. The girls will love them :)

  5. Hey Lee, the flowers look great, love the bright colours..........

    I find it's quite addictive making them, they're such fun to crochet and so quick and easy.

    Hope all the building and digging is going according to plan.
