The Earth laughs in flowers - Ralph Waldo Emerson
 Just looking at flowers brings joy and put a smile on our faces. So what to do when you can't grow them?? you make them of course! I made some crocheted roses recently and really loved it. They are simple and not time consuming. Here are some of the pictures...



You can find the free pattern on how to crochet these roses in here



I turned some into bookmarks with tassels at the end (inspired by pinterest)


This rose will make a lovely embellishment for crochet headbands (Unfortunately my little one hates to wear any headbands) Guess i can make hairclips out of them and use it myself :)


Handmade flowers are just as special as real ones, aren't they?

Hope you all are having a wonderful week. Happy crafting!

So here's a little Diy on how to make a watermelon headphone holder.
