Crochet Bookflowers: The Ultimate Guide
Crochet is an ancient craft that has stood the test of time. With its versatility, it can be used to create various items such as clothing, accessories, and even decorative pieces. Among the decorative pieces that can be created with crochet are bookflowers, also known as book page flowers. These unique flowers add an elegant touch to any bookshelf, desk, or home decor. In this ultimate guide, we will explore everything you need to know about crochet bookflowers.
To create crochet bookflowers, you will need the following materials:
Old book pages
Crochet hook (size G or H)
Yarn (color of your choice)
Cut the pages of the book into rectangles that are approximately 6 inches long and 2 inches wide. The number of rectangles you need will depend on how many flowers you want to create.
Fold the rectangles in half lengthwise, and then fold them in half again.
Using the crochet hook, pull the yarn through the folded corner of the book page, leaving a tail of about 3 inches.
Create a slipknot with the yarn, and pull it tight around the folded corner.
Chain 2 stitches, and then single crochet into the center of the folded page.
Chain 2 stitches, and then single crochet again into the same center stitch.
Repeat steps 5 and 6 until you have created a total of 6 single crochet stitches in the center of the page.
Slip stitch into the first single crochet stitch to join the round.
Chain 3 stitches, and then double crochet into the same stitch.
Double crochet again into the next stitch.
Repeat step 10 until you have worked all the way around the center of the page.
Slip stitch into the top of the first chain 3 to join the round.
Cut the yarn, leaving a tail of about 3 inches.
Using the tapestry needle, weave the tail through the stitches on the back of the flower.
Use the glue gun to attach the flower to a stem, which can be made from a wire or wooden skewer covered in green yarn.
