Crochet flower card

Crochet flower card free patter

Step 1. First up make some flowers. I used a 3ply cotton and a 2.5mm hook… but you could use any yarn and corresponding hook. Embroidery floss and a 1.5mm hook would be cute.  Make a magic circle and chain 1. Sc 10 times into the circle:

Pull tight and join with a slip stitch:

Chain 2, DC into the next stitch 3 times, chain 2…

and slip stitch into the next stitch (one petal made).

Repeat (chain 2, 3 dc into next stitch, chain 2, ss into next stitch) to make 4 more petals (5 in total) and ss into the bottom of your starting chain to finish.
Pull your magic circle super tight, fasten off the ends and voila… one cute tiny flower:
Make two more in different colors and sew a small button in the center of each one.
Step 2: Make desired number of leaves using green cotton:
Chain 7 ss in second chain from the hook, hdc in next stitch, dc in next 2 stitches, hdc in next, ss in last stitch. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Step 3: Select your card. I like to rule my lines to make sure my sewing is straight:

Then with a rubber under the front of the card, use your needle to punch holes the length of the line (stem) so your stitches are even(ish):

Step 4: Stitch the stems, up, then back (fasten off after each one):

Step 5: And glue your flowers and leaves in place:

And there you have a very happy little card! I’m thinking I might make another and frame it… What do you think?
