You can never have enough patterns for flowers because you can put them wherever you want them. They just compliment everything. I love them mostly on hats, sweaters, scarves, and on some types of mittens. I also think they would look great on a crochet cup warmer, just to add a little touch to let someone you know you care about them. Thanks for sharing.

I love these little flowers! I just hope I can make several of the same! I made a strap shoe on an Amigurumi doll once, and I had to frog it several times to get them both the same. (Frog means to tear it all out and do over! Not uncommon but sure disappointing!)
