Roses for Anastasia and Dimitrios

My beloved friends, Anastasia and Dimitrios, celebrated their civil marriage this weekend. I made a special gift for their planned trip to Paris: I took the instructions for a rose brooch by Daniela Herbertz, and then I made seven roses and attached them on a basket.

Inside I put a box with a little bit of spending money for their trip – and the result you can see here:

Here is the pattern for the roses /Raverlry: Rose brooch

How I made the roses

I took a hairpin and a pipe cleaner,

and wrapped it around the hairpin (you can also take a pearl),

and then I wrapped the crocheted rose around it. I sew the rose firmly so it will not be able to move or open up later.


This is how it looks like from below:

And this is the finished rose:

There is only one happiness in life,
to love and be loved.

George Sands (1804 – 1876)

May your future be blessed with love and happiness!

    1. Thank you for your nice comment, dear Vanja. I also love roses and when I put them on the basket, they looked so good. I was so happy to give them a special gift, I have made with my hands.
