Flower Pin Free Crochet Pattern
Daisy Delight 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 flower pin free crochet pattern as much as I do!

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 small (1/4”) button
1.50mm thread hook (you could also use a 1.35 or 1.75)
small wide eyed craft needle
needle nose pliers
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. You will
I highly recommend unwinding your skein of embroidery thread onto a floss divider 1st to keep it from tangling as you work

- Working in the back loops of the same round, sl st into 1st st and change to the leaf color (insert hook into st, pick up new color and pull the new color through the st). Cut end of flower color and tie both short tails (one of flower color and one of leaf color) together securely.

Fasten off. Tie the three outside tails together (leaving center/starting tail), and cut short so that it is hidden from the front. Using long center tail, secure button to center of flower. You do not have to add a button but you will be able to see bar pin through the center of the flower if you do not.
- 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.
Finished Pins in Embroidery Thread and Worsted Weight Yarn
This 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.
