Some time ago now I used some Kaisercraft crochet flowers on a couple of layouts (one is here), although at the time I didn't know they were Kaisercraft. The lovely Toni left me a comment on one of the posts suggesting that I had a go at making my own, but since I haven't knitted anything since I was a child and have never learned to crochet, I didn't take up her suggestion.
Then, not so long ago, I saw this post on Julia's blog, reviewing a book on how to crochet. So I took the plunge, ordered the book, enlisted the help of my friend Carrina, and learned to crochet!
These flowers are part of a bigger pattern for a bag, but I thought I'd start small :D
I'm really pleased with my first attempt, and am finding it strangely addictive! I've already started on my second project, which is project bag from another pattern from the book. So far I've got a base and a side, and am half way through the second side. Just the back, front, pockets and handles to do!
