Crochet Roses

If you follow my I Love Crochet board on Pinterest (and why wouldn't you?!  I'm a pinning rock-star! LOL!) you have probably seen that I went crazy pinning crochet rose patterns a few weeks ago.  I was crocheting a cadet hat for my sister, and I wanted to add a little extra to it, so I went looking for roses. The pattern that I liked the best (THIS one from Kati Crafts) was designed with small hooks and crochet thread in mind, but I wanted big, full blooms!  I used a size H hook and some worsted weight yarn and POW! I got some giant roses!!!



I ended up using one on my sister's cap, and I LOVE how it turned out! It looks SO good in person. I got the pattern for the cadet cap HERE from Sick Lil Monkeys.  It was so much fun to work up.



But THIS is what I'm the happiest about: I turned one of the roses into a giant pincushion!!


It's heavy enough to sit nicely on my sewing table, and the petals stick up nicely for me to poke the pins into easily.  I adore it!!!  I used to have a magnetic spot on the front of my old sewing machine, so I've never worried about pincushions before, but with my new machine I've been keeping my pins in a little dish which has resulted in more finger pokes than I like to remember!  Now my fingers will be nice and safe, and my sewing table is extra fancy!
