This darling bobby-pin accessory works for children and adults alike. Use it in weddings, for Easter, or any time you need a tiny flower to to add interest to your hair.
Originally I came up with this design to use at craft fairs and farmers markets. People are always looking for a deal, and with how quickly these work up, you can easily make a large variety in all kinds of colors.
Finished flower measures approximately 1.5″ across.
#10 crochet thread in off-white or thread color of your choice
needle for sewing on pearl, and attaching flower to bobby-pin
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
tc = treble crochet
sl st = slip stitch
*Leave a 12″ tail for sewing on bead and attaching flower to bobby-pin*
Round 1: ch 6, join to first ch with sl st forming ring.
Round 2: sl st into ring. ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, sl st. *ch 1, 3dc, ch 1, sl st into ring* repeat until you have 5 petals
Round 3: working behind petals from round 2: ch 1, sl st into back of first petal, *ch 4, sl st into back of next petal* Repeat 4 more times. (5 ch, 4 spaces)
Round 4: sl st into first ch 4 space. ch1, dc, 4 tc, dc, ch1, sl st. *sl st into next ch 4 space, ch 1, dc, 4 tc, dc, ch 1, sl st* (5 petals)
Fasten off and weave in center end.
Using long tail, sew a bead in the center of the flower, and use the remaining length to sew the flower to the bobby-pin.
