Crochet Flower Inspiration

Via Pinterest
Whenever I need to air my head and relax, I search for ideas of how to use my enormous crochet flower collection. In moments like those I let my brain graze on pinterest's feed.
Luckily I found some immensely captivating images that urge me to get hold of my hook and recreate them. Now, this is not something that is going to really happen in reality like right now, this minute, but it feels good to enlarge and widen the "what I might to with my flowers" perspective. I have had my eyes on the above blanket for a long time but my flowers are different in sizes so that means I will have to work on the hexagon background or foundation to fit all, so that's what has been putting me off. Because I have THREE BLANKETS as UFOs - not planning to add this to the pile.
What seems feasible is to use them in making scarves. Look at these gorgeous scarves I found.

Most of the flowers I make are used to become necklaces. But I made lots of other things. Here's just a glimpse:
 Brooches & Rings
Sold some as kits

So, you see. We keep things interesting here. One never knows what those flowers are to become next.

Aaah, yes, flowers are very inspiring. I'm planning a flower-blanket this year too...

I plan to at least manage and finish one :)

Scarves, necklaces and brooches seem the most feasible projects for these flowers. Although flower blankets are really beautiful I've had crocheted enough blankets for a lifetime. Looking forward to see yours so don't give up and keep working on them! :-)

So much gorgeousness. I can imagine just how much you have to work with. Scarves would be an excellent way to put those flowers to use.

Fantastic inspiration that you've found! And fabulous makes with your flowers!
You can also sew many flowers together to make a kind of curtain? Or cushions? I'm sure you won't be needing to add much of a background if you take the time to puzzle :-) Already looking forward to see what you come up with!
