This week I would like to share some crochet sunflowers with you.
This one is from a book a friend brought me for Christmas with patterns for 3D crochet Granny Squares. I love Granny Squares and they are a great way of using up excess wool. It’s lovely to create them too, I’m just not so sure what to do with them. I must have about 50 different ones now. I decided to crochet a sunflower as it’s associated with Ukraine. I changed the background colour to blue to highlight the Ukraine flag colours. (In the book it was a light green colour.)
I like the 3D effect, maybe I could make a few of them and turn them into something useful.
The next sunflowers are just Granny Square crochet sunflowers that I made without a pattern and used up some spare wool lying around. Again I used the colours of Ukraine. I’ve put them on my coffee table as coasters but they’ve not been used yet.
My New Bag
Next I’d just like to show you something a bit different. As I was on a roll with the granny squares I decided to make granny square bag. It’s only a small bag, but I may make a bigger one. I’ve put it for sale in my Etsy Shop.
I love my little shop but I sometimes wonder what to make that people will actually buy. I love making scarves and hats but with summer coming up I can’t see people wanted them. I can make amigurumi (Small figures) but I find them tricky and tiring one my hands and eyesight. I can make toys but again they seem to be fiddly. I’ll think of something I’m sure, I’ll browse some of the other crochet shops and see what they are making. I’m going to give my Readers a special 20% off code to use in my shop SAVE20 or use this link
