I had a job interview today and couldn’t wear my smartest outfit (what I wore for my Viva) since I wore it to an interview at the same place last week! So, enter brand-new (to me, thanks R!) white and black shirt. Worn with black trousers, cardigan, shoes, bag, coat…see the problem?? I needed to add a bit of colour somehow so thought I’d try making a wee corsage to go on my cardigan.
I have begun making crochet flowers many times but never finished them simply because I decided at one point in the creation process for each, that they were turning out to be ugly. I think my aesthetic rejection was of the size and texture, because this tiny cotton flower makes me happy! I used embroidery floss, a 1.75mm hook and begun a vague flower, which turned into a daffodil. I added a leaf and sewed it to a safety pin. I think I’ll make a few more!
Oh yeah, the interview went well and I will be needing many more office-worthy outfits from now on!
