Nothing says “Spring!” like flowers. Even simple, floral-themed items have a way of bringing joy to our lives, especially on those rainy spring days.
Exactly one year ago, I was inspired by my daughters’ matching floral pajamas. I couldn’t stop thinking about the fun daisy design, and I ended up turning it into a crocheted purse that my girls could use to carry around their little trinkets. Turns out, I still haven’t stopped thinking about that daisy design.
In fact, now it has inspired this mini daisy! This mini flower can be used as shelf decor for a nursery or kid’s room, or you can add a rattle insert to turn it into a cute toy for little ones. That’s what I’m going to show you how to do today!
It works up super quick, which makes it a great last-minute crochet baby shower gift all year long!
