Free Crochet Pattern: Tiny Flowers

Hi dolls - I have a mini tutorial for you today to make tiny crochet flower embellishments!

This easy pattern...
  ♥  Only takes a few minutes or less to make one
  ♥  Is great for beginners to practice making uniform shapes
  ♥  Is a great stash buster.
Gauge, hook, and yarn size does not matter. I do suggest you go a half size smaller for your hook, so you can pull the flower tight. If you are a beginner, try a plain yarn suited for a 4mm-6mm hook in cotton, acrylic, or polyester, instead of fancy yarns.

Materials (what I used):
  ♥  Yarn (4mm acrylic)
  ♥  Half a size smaller than your yarn's suggested hook size (3.5mm)
  ♥  Rhinestones, cabochons, pom poms, etc. (4mm pearl cabochons)

(1) Make a magic ring. Check out some fantastic tutorials here.
(2) 8 sc in the ring.
(3) Pull tight, and finish off (FO). Sew ends to the back, not the side you see when you crochet.
(4) Glue on an embellishment in the centre, and it is ready to use in your craft projects! I hope you all enjoyed this little pattern.

CO+K Christchurch City Guide

Hi dolls! I meant to share this a while ago for my Christchurch City Guide on Cut Out + Keep! It took a while to make as most of the city is still in its rebuild stage. Here's a few snippets from my post:

There is a lot going on, new buildings, and shops moving all the time, as well as road works constantly when you are navigating the city due to the devastating earthquakes in 2010, 2011, and Kaikoura in 2016. Though, it can be challenging sometimes, you will always discover something new in this resilient city!

I've been living here for about three years now, and I'm always discovering new places, things to do, and incredible street art. I hope you enjoy this 'wee gem of a city', known as the Garden City, and one day get to explore this beautiful country. Happy travels!
