This easy to make, darling bobby-pin accessory works for children and adults alike. Crochet it for use in weddings, for Easter, or any time you need a tiny flower to to add interest to your hair. If you’ve never worked with crochet thread before this is a great first project!
Originally I came up with this design to sell 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.
