I made this little pram toy for the baby of a dear friend. I hope the little munchkin enjoyed it. my friend told me her daughter liked to grab at the tangling toys. They are roughly based on patterns found in a book called ‘100 Kleine Häkelfiguren’ (100 little crochet figures)
I made this flower from a pattern I found in a book called Häckelblumen (crochet flowers) by Nicky Epstein. In the book the flowers were designed entirely in white to decorate a bridal bouquet but I think they are very pretty in two colours and can decorate all sorts of things…… like, for example, this simple T-shirt. I think these five quickly crocheted flowers turn it into something really nice and special.
Of course you can use any flower pattern to decorate clothing in a similar manner. What I particularly like about this pattern is the perl in the centre. Again, the perl can be added to many similar crochet flower patterns. I think it makes the flower look a little more elegant and, if nothing else, it covers the small whole that can sometimes come up in the centre of a magic ring.
