of my cousin's present.
I made this flower yesterday evening. It is the first flower I made and I quite enjoyed it. I couldn't find the perfect one in any book that I looked at. Either they were way too small, the wrong design or weren't colourful enough.
Flower Power! thats what I wsnted. My cousin only turned 18 and although she is maybe more on the conservative side for her age I still wanted something young and fun. I knew I wanted to use quite a few colours, so the flower had to be very layered. I also knew I wanted a colour in the inside that was very different to the pinks and orange. So, it had to be lime green as that is my most favourite colour and a nice citrusy contrast. But it still goes nicely with the orange (limes and oranges...get it? ;)
The flower will be attached to the finished piece of the big red crochet thing I showed you in my last post ;) I am very tempted to show you the whole thing, but instead I will show you one corner of it, together with the flower.
I am waiting for some felt at the moment and then I should hopefuly have the presenr finished soon and can move on to other things (like finishing the pink elephant..oops). Although I have to see how much time I will have to start any new things as I am going to Germany in 2 weeks. Yay!
