African Flowers

I’ve been wanting to use the African Flower Crochet pattern in something for ages.
I’ve seen these bears, pattern by Heidi Bears, all over Pinterest

Then I read a post on the GrangeRange blog here about the African Flower hexagons she had made for Made By Patch’s collaborative blanket
I loved the Debbie Bliss cotton she used.African Flowers

I had my next three projects for Minerva Crafts to choose so I decided to make one of them an African Flower Crochet cushion. I’ve 3 months to make it up, so no rush.

These are my colours.

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  4. Those hippos and bears are the sort of things that make me wish I could crochet! It is Heidi Bear’s blog I am using to make my ‘toe-up, two at the same time, magic loop socks’ (just got to the heels!) and her step by step tutorial for these is incredibly comprehensive and so generous of her to have posted it with all those photos – must have taken her ages.

    • I’ll definitely be checking out that tutorial, thank you. I have often thought about how on earth the 2-at-a-time socks came together. Never quite got my head around it.

  6. Love your colours choice, the red really pops out in the centre. The African Flower pattern is really fun to make, quite simple but so effective. Hope you had a good break away and have returned refreshed and relaxed.

    I really love this crochet bear – though without my glasses he looks a bit like he has heat blotches!
