I decided it would be nice to make my mummy a card instead of buying something generic from the supermarket. Naturally everything I make is crocheted!
I delved into my stash of super colourful Rico Creative Cotton yarn. I do love this yarn, it is so different to work with than wool or more fluffy type yarns. You have to be careful as it does have a tendency to split but the finish it gives is fab and the colours are just amazing.
I picked some girly colours, something I thought my mum would like and something suitable for flowers.
I then consulted my favorite crochet pattern book, 100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet by Lesley Stansfield. There are some lovely lovely flower patterns in here, I was spoilt for choice. I wanted something not too big and something that would sit flat onto the card.
To finish off my flowers I added a little button detail to the middle with some visible yellow thread.
Here is the finished card, what do you think?
Did you get crafty for Mother's Day this year? What did you make? Or are you a mother and you were presented with something beautiful and handmade?
Mummy, I know you read my blog (mostly only person who does! lol!) Did you like your card?
