These flowers whip up pretty fast and are great stash buster projects.  I've made five of them now and am trying to decide if I want to make a purse with them or just stick them on a pillow.  What would you use them for?

You can Download the Printable PDF HERE too, so you can get busy making your own!  Happy Crocheting!
