My Grandmother could crochet beautifully, she was so talented. She would make all her grand kids blankets and dolls. When I was pregnant with my first baby she made her the most darling outfits and booties.
When I was about 8 I went to her house for the afternoon and she taught me how to crochet a little purse. I really enjoyed doing it and was so proud of what I had made.
Unfortunately I never went back for another lesson.
Recently I was going through some old childhood toys and things I had saved through the years and I found the little red purse I made that day. It brought back great memories and it made me want to learn again.
Today I bought a crochet hook and some yarn. I really love crocheted flowers, I think they look so cute on hairbands and as little embellishments.
I looked on the internet and found this tutorial. It was easy to follow and had a really good video. She also has some other crochet tutorials that I am anxious to try.
Here's my first attempt at a flower. It's not the best but I don't think too bad for a first try. I will keep practicing!
Any tips or advice would be appreciated!
