Crocheted and Felted Flower Brooches

Below are several crocheted and felted flower brooches that I made and gave this year for Christmas gifts. I use wool yarn and begin by choosing colors that remind me of the recipient. I then crochet the flower, sew in the ends, felt it, then add embellishments and a pin back. I thought these would be a good entry for the GIFT category for my Whiplash entry.

I like the dyed on on the bottom the best, with the flower jewelry piece. Beautiful.
