There is a free pattern to download HERE for the first of my festive range, an irish crochet rose:
Folksy Store, simply by clicking the image
I designed this little brooch yesterday. I've been toying with Christmas ideas for a while and made some lovely baubles, which I'll show you later in the week. The Christmas decs are in "the dangerous cupboard", which means trying to get to the tinsel I want to photograph them against could end in serious injury! am sure we all one :-). Once I'd finished it, my thoughts turned to charity makes as I've not done any for a while and I thought that this rose would be ideal as you could pick and choose the colours to match their logos. Additionally they are quick and easy to make up, so they could easily share the pattern and get their supporters crocheting them up.
Also it would make a lovely wedding favour - crocheted in the wedding colour schemes - for lady guests... the possibilities are endless...
