I made a thing! It’s for sale! You can find it here! What is this thing, you ask? Why, it’s a barrette with a crochet flower on it. And it’s adorable!
Ok, so I made more than one, in multiple colors, and adorable might not be the best word to describe this, but I think it’s pretty. I made these using a pattern for a headband that I found on the website for Red Heart Yarn. (Obligatory pattern link). I like this pattern because, unlike with most flower patterns, you don’t have to sew it together at the end.
I originally came across this pattern when one of my friends who was just learning to crochet wanted to make a headband with a flower on it, and wanted me to teach them how to do it. I walked her through making the flower, and at the end, wound up with one of my own. That flower sat around for about four months before I got the bright idea to sew a barrette to the back of it.
Overall, this pattern is cute and fairly easy to make. Additionally, it makes up in under an hour, so it’s a great quick craft, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to embellish something.
