Crochet Flower Hair Clip

Crochet Flower Hair Clip
Spring Blossom Flower Pin or Barrette

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.

I hope you will love this crochet flower hair clip pattern as much as I do!
Flower pin patternsAlso featured is the Daisy Delight Flower Pin Pattern

What You’ll Need:
1 skein of embroidery thread in flower color
1 skein of embroidery thread in leave color (optional)
1 bar pin
1.50mm thread hook (you could also use a 1.35 or 1.75)
small wide eyed craft needle
needle nose pliers
scissors
materials needed  pins

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

I highly recommend unwinding your skein of embroidery thread onto a floss divider 1st to keep it from tangling as you work

    step 11
  12. Position bar pin in the back center of flower and sew into place using the starting tail.  Weave tail behind pin a couple times to ensure it is secure and cut short.  (check to make sure the pin works before sewing it on, sometimes you will get a defective one).  You will probably need to use the pliers to sew on pin since it is such as small/tight space.
    step 12    step 12 weavecover flower pin free patternThis flower also looks great as a hair accessory, simply sew finished flower on to your choice of barrette.  For use with a bobby pin leave off the last round of petals for a smaller finished look.  I’ll also be using this flower to accent a sweet pair of toddler slippers I am working on!

Thank you so much for the flower patterns. I am making my cousin a black hat on the weekend and I think the purple flower (made with yarn) will look wonderful on it!

How much embroidery thread is needed to make one of these flowers — or how many flowers can be made with one skein?

I use embroidery floss to make them, I can usually get two flowers from each skein.

How can I print out the instructions without getting all the comments from others? It wastes a lot of paper. Thanks. I love all your patterns
