Cushion Flower Tutorial

Created for the "Get Crafty Contest": -> [link]

If you need any help with some basic stitch terms, there is a great tutorial here: -> [link]

This tutorial came out of two things:
a) I had so much fun doing my first tutorial.
b) I've been meaning to put this cute idea I had down on paper for about 8 years now.

I encourage everyone to give it a try - I'm happy to give pointer wherever I can. This is super easy, super cute and only your imagination is the limit for what you can use the "Cushion Flowers" for.
If you do give it a go - please drop me a line to show me what you created. I would love to see!

I would love your feedback on this tutorial - it is only my second one. I have enjoyed doing this again - so perhaps another at some point.... when I get another idea (or it is requested enough).

They're so cute! Gotta try this some time! ^^

I think they could be used on a headband as well :3 Like a flower crown but with these, maybe on an elastic band to keep it on the head.

This is so cute and it looks so easy! I'll have to treat myself and make some flowers once I get a break from school.

Awesome tutorial! Thank you so much for sharing. Perfect for Christmas gifts for the girls in my office.....They usually get chocolates or scarves that I've knitted - will be nice to be able to give them some different....and a good use for some of my bead and button stash. :squee:
