These unusual crochet flowers are worked directly onto buttons to create interesting and unique fibreart jewellery with enough ‘body’ to always hold their shape well.

Originally designed for mini-workshops at the Aussie craft shows, this tutorial covers not only a basic pattern, but also everything you need to know to individualize the design yourself, so that you can easily create your own variations. Thin, smooth cottons work well for these brooches, but they can also be crocheted or embellished on the last few rounds using any other fine-weight novelty yarns or threads that you have in your stash.
