Japanese crochet: Flower brooches


Doesn't looking at them make you feel joyful and happy? The heavy, layered structure of the flower brooches gives richness to anything they are pinned to. The colors are soft and tender, yet the flowers appear powerful. These are my latest brooches inspired by Japanese crochet flowers. Can't describe how much I enjoyed making them.


Another thing. Starting from tomorrow I am having a short series of posts with handmade gift tutorials named "Last Minute Gifts" that will go on until Christmas. So if you are interested come back tomorrow for a sweet and easy gift making idea.

These are beyond sweet! I adore them and am all ready looking forward to your last minute gift ideas. I really need some!

To answer your question, they are centers for hexagons I am using for a stocking pattern I found on Ravelry. Never made a stocking before so here's hoping it goes well.

Dear Maya,
I truly love your site and beautiful creations. I just found these lovely flowers and wondered if you ever did write down a pattern? I'd love to make these for my daughters...
Thanks, Iris

Dear Iris,
Thank you so much on the sweet comment.
I would have written a more personal reply, but I couldn't find your mail (there is no contact info on google+).
The pattern for the above flowers is quite simplistic but I haven't written it down. However, I am in the midst of creating some flower patterns, so check back, there'll be notification here and you may like some of the patterns that'll be offered.
