Introduction

This flower makes an adorable pin, brooch, or hair clip.  It also looks great as an embellishment on any finished item.   They are quick and easy to work up and will get you a big bang for your buck.  Each flower (in  thread) costs me approximately $0.40 to make and I sell them for $4.00.  That’s a 1000% mark up.  You can’t beat that with a stick.  These are one of my best selling items in boutique settings and they still leave plenty of wiggle room for me to make a profit.

Materials List

1 skein of embroidery thread in flower color
1 skein of embroidery thread in leave color (optional)

1.50mm thread hook (you could also use a 1.35 or 1.75)
small wide eyed craft needle
needle nose pliers
scissors

Notes

This pin can also be made using any yarn of your choice.  It will create a much bigger finished flower but is also very cute (I recommend using a slightly smaller hook than what the yarn calls for, I used a 4.0mm for mine).  Use sewing or embroidery thread to attach to pin
