While I’m not exactly sure what flower this looks like, I know this… I love it. I love the fluffiness and the simplicity of this flower. It would look fantastic on bags, hats, and scarves, wouldn’t it? As I tend to do when I need help (yes, even potty training advice), I went to my Facebook page to get suggestions. The most common response was carnation, but I also got dahlia, peony, and several others. Since most people said carnation, I decided to go with that.

This flower measures 2 3/4 inches in diameter, but you could easily modify it to make it larger if you wanted to. In fact, I have plans to make several different sizes to cluster together and attach to a crocheted bag for my little girl. If only I could find time to make that bag.
