Crochet a Pansy

My parents always liked petunias, but my favorite was the pretty little pansy with their cute faces and vibrant colours. Not only do I have a soft spot for the pansy, but then there is the adorable Johnny Jump Up, a tiny version of this particular flower. Consquently this sweet little flower has become the inspiration for this fun project. 
Flowers to me add such wonderful dimension to a card, meanwhile handmade flowers create a unique and special dynamic. Wanting to bring this incredible aspect to some of my own creations, I came across this amazing idea for crochet pansies
As can be seen my first flower turned out a little large being the size of a regular pansy. Keeping that in mind, I grabbed  a smaller hook plus much finer thread from my stash and set out to create a second flower. This particular flower turned out much smaller only being slightly larger than the Johnny Jump Up itself. Fortunately, this size will be perfect for adhering to a special upcoming card in the near future.

Happy crafting,
