Tips For Attaching Posies:

  • Leaving a long tail at the end of the second round enables you to use that tail to attach posy to intended project.
  • For a puffier posy, sew only the bottom loop of the flower into the intended project.
  • Pin posies to surface of project before sewing to have a set layout.
  • Mix colors and textures for interesting contrast!
  • Sew a button into the center of each posy to add extra pop to the project.

    I do a similar pattern and I use it all the time to pretty up plain patterns. Some other great tips are:
    Increase the size of the flower by increasing your hook size or vice versa
    Instead of attaching posies, put them on a small brass safety pin and then they can easily be removed for sharing between garments or easy laundering.

    Great pattern!

    I just did a few of these and added them to a crocheted hat that I rescued from our local thrift store. The hat was great but the flowers made it fabulous!! Thanks for sharing this pattern.

  4. [...] an open at the side case, for phones with jacks on the side. Embellish your case with a bunch of darling poseys as a perfect girly gift for a teenager’s first cell phone or make a black and orange case [...]

  5. [...] flower is much like the darling posy applique but is larger and can also be used as a motif for afghans, scarfs, table runners, jewelry and more. [...]

    I just crocheted a basic earwarmer and used this pattern for a flower applique. I made two – one of the 6-petal posies and one of the 5-petal posies and put one on top of the other to make a bulkier applique. I just posted a blog with photos – click on my name if you would like to see!
