Sweet & Simple

Turns out the crochet book I purchased at Michael's a while back has been worth every penny.
It's fun and adorable and the projects are super cute and do-able. It has that little touch of 70's crochet-kitsch that I find so appealing, too!
Yesterday, while Cub and her cuz were in rehearsal, I sat and made some lovely daisies- a pattern from the book. These make me happy and the possibilites are endless. Not to mention all the potential color-combos make me dizzy with joy!
Potential: Hair clips, appliques, bookmarks, and all sorts of embellishments, really.
I turned these two into hairclips for the girls. I hand-sewed one of those metal snap-clips (you can find in most craft stores) on to the back of the flowers. Done.

Miss Fly-Away Hair loved hers and wore it for about an hour...which is a lot for my girl!

If anyone is interested in this pattern, I will gladly pass on the sweetness!
