April Showers Bring May Flowers

Flowers flowers, flowers. I love them! Real flowers...Crochetted flower, knitted flower, fabric and paper flower... Colorful, beautiful flower dancing in the air ... No matter if they are in my yard or crocheted in my bag, I just love them. 

Tonight I'm going to try to write a tutorial on how to crochet a cute little flower for my sister so she can put a pretty flower on a pair of sleepers that she crocheted for our mom for Mother's day. I saw these pretty little flowers at website. They are so cute and I think they would also be perfect for the sleeper. I'll write this tutorial in Portuguese, but if you want them in English you can easily look in her website or request it here and I'll try to post it here also.And by the way, THANK YOU melmaria for the free pattern.
