Spring has sprung !!

Recently, in one of my awesome swap group we were assigned an Easter basket swap.  Come to find out my partner is an older woman and I do believe that the basic Easter Bunny basket will not work. On that note, I have been scouring the internet for basic flower apliques and have found nothing that I like .  I have come up with these two cute basic flowers. The first flower is a rounded flower with two leaves. The second flower is a slightly larger pointed flower with three leaves. The flowers and the leaves are both worked separately and later sewn together. The items you will need for this project are:

Cotton yarn in yellow, blue and white. You can also use any worsted weight yarn.
G hook
Needle for sewing
**picot: ch2, slip stitch in first ch. **

Small flower

Using yellow Ch2
R1: 5 sc in first ch. Join in first sc. Fasten off weave ends. (5sc)
R2: Using blue, join with slip stitch at any sc, * ch1, hdc,DC,hdc,ch1, slip stitch in same sc, slip stitch in next sc*, repeat around in each sc. Join in joining ch. Fasten off leaving long tail for weaving.

Small leaves

Using green ch2
R1: 4sc in first ch, join in first sc.
R2: *ch5, slip stitch in first ch, sc in next, 2dc in next, hdc in next, sc in next, slip stitch in next, repeat * to* in each sc around. Join in join ch. Fasten off leaving long tail for sewing.

Large flower

Using yellow, repeat R1 of small flower
R2: *ch1, hdc,DC, picot,DC,hdc,ch1,slip stitch in same sc, slip stitch to next sc*. Repeat from * to * in each sc around. Join in joining ch. Fasten off leaving long tail for sewing.

Large leaves

Using green ch2, 5sc in first ch from hook, join in first sc.
R2: *ch7, slip stitch in first ch from hook, sc in next, hdc in next, 2 DC in next, hdc in next , sc in next, slip stitch in next 2 sc* repeat twice more for a total of 3 leaves. Fasten off leaving long tail for sewing.

Place flower directly on top of center of leaves and using tail from flower sew onto leaves. Using tail from leaves sew flower onto anything you'd like!

Ready for Fall

Is Fall here yet??? Nope, three more weeks till school starts and I am so ready for summer to be over with. This heat AND humidity is killer on my skin and hair. I find myself longing for the leaves to change colors and that oh so good smell of a fireplace at work. 
On that note, I want to share with you my cute little pumpkin pattern. It is the perfect decor that you can use all throughout the Fall season. I love displaying them on my mantle and I am sure you will too <3

Materials

H hook
Redheart With Love yarn in autumn orange and dark brown
Needle for weaving
Stuffing/fill

Ch20

*From here on out work each stitch in the top 2 stitches of previous hdc*
R2-22: hdc in same stitch and in each stitch across, ch2, turn.(18)

With WS facing you, slip stitch ends together and finish off leaving extra long tail for weaving. Flip inside out so RS is showing.

Weave tail around bottom edge as if making a drawstring bag and pull tight closing bottom.

With same tail weave top edge but before pulling tight fill with stuffing. Pull tight closing your pumkin. Using your needle sew the top close then push your needle through the middle out the bottom,pull tight and sew close bottom opening. Push your needle through the middle and out the top once more, pull tight ( this shapes your pumpkin) . Finish off/Weave in.
