Crochet Candy that is proud to be an American

So I finally completed new flowers with a twist for the upcoming Independence Day.
I have more in the works, so I would love any feedback - good or bad! 



As you can see, I added a little USA love to these flowers.   Thought they would be a nice touch for the upcoming Independence Day or anytime you want to show a little patriotic love of the wonderful Country God has allowed us to live. 





Krystal had asked on a comment earlier about how to learn to do these -or- if I would do a tutorial.  
So I thought I would answer that here!

Honestly, there is no magical secret to these flowers, I simply found a crochet flower tutorial online and adapted it to something I thought was cute and wearable.  There are tons of pictorial and video tutorials to learn the basics of crochet and these are made with several basic stitches. My advice...pick yourself up a crochet hook and some yarn Google "crochet flower tutorial" and give it a go!

Practice, practice, practice!




Wanted to give you a little peek of the backside of the Crochet Candy.
I like to call it Crochet Candy Unplugged -   *grins*




As you can see, it's all nice and covered back there with some felt and contrasting stitches - Hey, everyone likes cute underthings right? hehe




I just add a basic pin back, and some finishing touches and they are good to go.  

I have also customized some hair clips for some cuteness of the hair! 

So here they are all packaged up!
{I know, I know, the star for the "O" was a bad idea! That's what spontaneity can do!}



Let me know what you think, these little babies are ready to go. 
Ten bucks +shipping can get you one just in time for July 4th!

Shame, was hoping for more help! Haha that's awesome though, I love them - they're adorable and I must say so. But thanks for the tip! Sometime I'll get back into certain crafts - guess I should practice crocheting though. I'm a slow crocheter and still a beginner. Although I almost finished two babies blankets from instructions years ago. I guess I should dig them back up and the pattern and finish the edging! LOL. You're awesome!

I've bought in bulk from Crochet Candy and everyone I have ever given these precious flowers to LOVED them! Why learn to make them yourselves when you can buy them from Kim at such a great price!?!
