Layered Flowers

I have a little basket into which I throw my less than perfect blooms or those which I do not use on my finished projects.

Every now and then I will empty the basket and layer up the blooms to make a selection of "interesting" flowers!!    Just layer them from the biggest bloom up to the smallest and join them with an embroidery needle and some yarn!

For the first bloom I layered three different "flowers":

First 4 rows of my STARFLOWER MANDALA
A LITTLE WILDFLOWER
and a TEENY TINY STAR

For the second bloom I layered two different flowers:

A LITTLE WILDFLOWER
and two CHAIN LOOP DAISIES (you can vary the sizes of the chain loop daisy by crocheting more or less chains on each petal!)

Layer up whatever flower-like pieces you have made  - add a button or a bead and VOILA!!!

  1. What a good idea! I also have a stash of not quite right flowers, or ones I just did to see if I could. Now I will go and make fancy layered flowers with them!
