Flor Azul 11/12/14



Begin with a slip knot.



Chain 6.





Join in a ring with a slip stitch.




Round 1: Chain 1 (counts as first sc.) Work 14sc into ring for a total of 15 sc.
Join with slip stitch.






Round 1: Chain 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc into base of 3 chain, 3 dc into each sc.







End with a slip stich in top of 3 chain.







Round 2: Chain 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc into base of chain 3, 3 dc into each dc, ending with a slip stitch into top of chain 3. 


Round 3: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc into base of 3rd chain, 3 dc into each dc, end with slip stitch in top of 3ch.







Round 4: Work same as round 3.





Fasten off and weave in end.





To make fabric leaves:
Trace circle onto fabric choice for leaves. I used a jar lid.






Find center of circle by ironing a crease down the middle.






(Does this all seem familiar? Yup. It's just like the petals from the fabric flower tutorial I did here.)
Using a rotary cutter, cut down the center for 2 pieces.





Fold piece in half, right sides together. Sew a seam down straight edge.





Turn right side out.




Hand sew a running stitch on open edge.





Gather tightly. Secure with knot.





Hand sew to backside of crocheted flower.



I have a collection of vintage earrings. Loooooove to collect these, by the way!


By gently pulling apart the back from the front, I can easily use the perforated earring top to sew to the center of my flower.




You could also use a button, beads for the center -- or even leave it plain.



Trace a circle onto felt and sew to cover the backside of flower.



Attach a pinback.





A gorgeous, crocheted flower brooch.


I would love to see yours if you make one!
