Crochet Flowers & Soldering Copper

I started a little project on the 4th of July.

I love to crochet and have had crocheted flowers on the brain lately. I found this pattern on Pinterest. You can check out the original tutorial here.

I filled my basket with a variety of yarn and got to work.

I am using Debbie Stoller's Alpaca Love. Read all about it here, if you are interested. It's a nice yarn and not too spendy.

You just need a few tools and you are ready to go.

They may become this bag. I really like the looks of that pattern. Or they just might become a simple tote or even a pillow cover. We'll see what happens.

Also on a jewelry-related note my latest post is up on Jewelry Making Daily. It's all about soldering copper, brass and nickel. Read it here. And you can buy the copper solder right in my Etsy Store.

Have a great weekend everybody!
