African Flower Crochet

Here’s a photo of my progress on my third Heidi Bears creature:

I’m still using leftover yarn.  The white yarn is a bit thinner than I would like but hopefully it will look alright with the white stuffing behind it.  I’m using a join-as-you-go method using the crochet hook rather than sewing the pieces together at the end.  I’d like to say it’s because it’s a better method but it’s really because I’m impatient and I like to see the creature forming as I go.

If you want to know how to crochet this “African Flower” motif, and you like video instructions like I do, then here’s a couple of great videos to follow:

  2. now that is really pretty—reminds me of my little violas blooming—much better than mother’s orange circa 1970 throw! 🙂

      • No, I was never one to sew like my mom.
        She could needle point, knit and crochet–as did my grandmother.
        My creativity was / is more in the kitchen–
        granted I was the art teacher for 31 years and did enjoy painting and the creative process, but I think I shine best in the kitchen 🙂
        I can kind of sew on a missing button—and that is where my skills end 🙂
        Mother use to make my dresses when I was little and I tried my hand on her “machine” and even took a sewing class in school way back in the day…but hated it.
        I somehow talked the teacher into finishing a sewing project for me that she had assigned if I could in turn do a bunch of filing for her—
        I can organize, but I can’t sew 🙂

      • I wish I shone in the kitchen. My family probably do too. 🙂 I don’t like doing the daily meals so hubby does a lot of those. I do like baking but I usually manage to leave out an important ingredient or mess up the timing or something. I tend to do alright with gingerbread cookies and cupcakes though.
