Once upon a time I was a professional costume designer/builder. Then I met a boy. You know how that goes. Now I am a Stay At Home Mom in NJ. We have twin girls who were born in July '07. The artist in me can not stay still, and we could use more income, so here I am! I love creating knit and crochet patterns, sewing (obviously!), book making, well...creating just about anything.
We also have a creative hobby. In some of our free time we are Medieval Re-creationists.
You can learn more about me, and see lots of fun snaps of my children and other creations on my blog, ~or~ You can keep tabs on my creations on my facebook page, both are linked below with my other crafty pages.
Thanks for stopping by!
This funky flower is reminiscent of those great 70's posters! It is actually created in the round, making all the petals at once, so it is really a flat circle. Then the border is put on to create the look of the petals. Use this flower as an applique on a hat, purse, jacket or other item. Attach it to a pin or hair clip or headband. There are so many possibilities!
Tahki Cotton Classic yarn is used in the video, though you can use nearly any yarn and the hook to match.
