Original Crochet Pattern by MOiRA Durano-Abesmo

My Christmas tree is so lonely! It’s December but I decided not to decorate it yet. (This is from the Philippines where the Christmas season begins as early as September.) So, I decided to make some crochet flowers to decorate it with. That way, I can add a touch of me to my Christmas tree!

For this set of flowers, I crocheted them following the technique I learned from the Double Blossom Flower for adding layers. In fact, the Joyce Flower is very similar to it.

I made it myself. It isn't really that hard. Although it takes a lot of patience. I wrote a hub about it. Please check it out: https://feltmagnet.com/textiles-sewing/Crochet-Pla...

Did you make the yarn from the plastic bags or buy it. Neat idea for recycling stuff. I love turning something old into new again. Would make great hairbows or pins.love it.

Very pretty flowers. What kind of material did you use? Is it some kind of yarn. Such flowers would perfectly fit for home decorations. Thank you for sharing.

I love crocheting flowers too, and am sure I will try all these patterns soon.
