Originally I came up with this delicate crochet flower design to sell at craft fairs and farmers markets. People are always looking for a deal, and with how quickly these flowers are to crochet, you can easily make a large variety of hair clips in all kinds of colors!
#10 Crochet thread is excellent for using to make flowers because of how delicate and pretty they turn out to be. You will need to use a small 1.5mm steel hook for this project, but if you are brave you could even try making this in #20 or #30 thread and an even smaller hook. The choice is completely up to you!

Is there a video of the flower

My oldest Granddaughter is getting married in June 2018. I am so very excited. I crocheted her mother’s wedding gown in 1988 along with her garter. She still has them wrapped with love in her cedar chest and on their 25th Anniversary displayed them at the celebration. I am so excited to find the pattern for these lovely gloves which I shall make, along with a small drawstring bag and a garter for my granddaughter. Thank you so much for this beautiful pattern…
They all sound like wonderful treasures! I’m sure your granddaughter will be very appreciative of the gloves, bag, and garter, just as her mother is, for your sweet gifts at her wedding.
