 Crochet Rose Embellishment

Crochet Rose embellishment are a great way to dress up plain items.   I bought this t-shirt at Michael’s when they were having a sale.  Plain t-shirts were $2.00 each!  You can’t beat the price, but unfortunately pretty plain Jane. I liked the V-neck.  It seemed perfect for my plans to embellishment with crochet roses.

Don’t worry my crochet hook to the rescue.  I decided to embellish the v neck section with 3 roses and 2 leaves.  I used simply soft caron for both roses and leafs.  The easy to follow video tutorials are available on my youtube channel.

Check the playlist;  “Flower and Leaf projects” Choose the quick and easy deco rose, and the leaf is the “small leaf”

These crochet roses use basic stitches and can be made in your favorite colors.  The rose is worked as a long strip and then rolled up and then the edges are sewn.  I have seen other roses but many of them seem to be more complex.  I like to simplify things.  I think if you aren’t enjoying what you are doing or if you are frustrated you will probably not complete your crochet projects.   The great part about these roses and leaves is that if you prefer you can make them into pins and that way you can remove them to wash your items.    I have uploaded a free Youtube video tutorial for you to want for both the rose and the leafs.    The links for the video tutorials are on the next page.

No more plain t-shirts.   Ahhh, I love easy solutions.  This would also work great for embellishing hats, scarfs, aghans, etc.  Or even as a cute pin.    Try it on your plain shirts and let me know how they turn out.  I have used these are baby hats and even on baby shoes.  I make them using a larger crochet hook and embellished my flip flops.  I think they came out really cute.
