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

Small flower

Using yellow Ch2

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
