I felt an urge to do make some flowers, for no particular reason other than it is spring. I wonder if I can make headbands for them to sell?
3 spring flowers made with 4 ply cotton and a 2mm hook

I decided this tri-colour flower needed something extra, so I made a fabric covered button to go in the centre using a scrap of fabric from my stash. I just used an old plastic button that had a hank on the back.
