crochet accessories

I went to DownEast Basics the other day and they had the cutest accessories. If you have ever been there then you know exactly what I mean, i love there clothes too. Everything is so unique and hand made looking, its like a boutique. Anyway...I love there necklaces and they had one with 3 crochet flowers on it for $14.99. I looked at it and thought...Why buy it when I can just make it!
So I crochet 3 flowers using this pattern  I used a G hook and just place it on felt with adhesive on the back then start cutting it out so you can't see the felt...you can see I started cutting the left side then took a pix so you can see.

here it is on the right side..  Then I attached ribbon in between the felt and the flower.


And here we are! you can't even see the felt can you? but I didn't have anything to put in the middle of the flowers and i thought the buttons would make it look too "Crafty"
So I ended up just tying knots of little bits of yarn and gluing it in the middle of the flowers.

And here it is all complete! I am very happy with it! The skein of yarn was $2.50 (with my coupon of course)
Not bad when I could have paid $14.99!

Hope you all like! If you love crochet then check out this owl hat I just made!

Before I go I want to tell you about a Crochet Along I found on:

luvinthemommyhood          I'm so excited! It couldn't have come at a better time. I have a cowl scarf that I made last year that I absolutely love and I want to make another one then I came across this and they are doing a cowl crochet along! Yay...if you don't have a cowl you need to make one and  you will fall in love. I just love how you just put it over you neck like a necklace but you don't have to worry about the loose ends. and it's so cozy, its like wearing a loose turtleneck but without the bulky-ness of a heavy sweater!
Hop on over and join the crochet along if you love to crochet!
