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!
