Flowers! Made a few with leftover red yarn. I wanted to see what I could make with a five petal flower, but they looked kind of odd when I lined up straight like a headband. When lined up in an arc, they seemed like they could be a necklace or a large two pin brooch, like something that could be pinned to the corner or center of something [like a pillow or the flap of a bag or the top of a tote] or even maybe holding together the top of an unbuttoned cardigan. 

And then I made smaller flowers and put them over, so they could be like the pins I made for some craft swaps. The red flower in the photo is part of the three at the top. I'm unsure what to do about it, since I don't have enough red to make all the red into pins and I don't know how appealing the 3-flower arc is.
But more flowers to come, they're nice and I like making them. Much more than bows.

Floral Headband

Been working on and off with this. Made one flower, then made the rest, sewed them together, sewed on elastic. Took me a few weeks to actually do it all of course, and I'm sure I could easily do it all in one sitting. I'm pretty satisfied with how it looks, but if I hadn't lost my small hook I might've added smaller flowers to go over the larger flowers [does that make sense?]

Worn photo, as this one is meant for my personal collection / as a test.

Bear Scarf Progress #3

Just needs eyes! And maybe an ear adjustment...if he needs it. I can't tell. I'm afraid his tail is too big, but if I cut too much from the pompom it might fall apart...
