Crochet Coaster – DIY

I made these coasters for housewarming gift, I don’t have the crochet pattern for this project though .. sorry. What I did was making 4 chains, sl st together to make a circle then sc along the chains. In the inner round I did 2 sc at the same space, when the circle got bigger I reduced the count. I added sc at the same space whenever the edge began to curl, otherwise 1 sc for each space. The good news is I have the pattern for the flower edge 🙂 It needs 4 chains space for each : 1 sc, 1dc 1tc at the same space, 1tc, 1dc 1tc at the same space , repeat.

Crochet Flower and Planter – DIY

Do you like collecting plastic or glass containers? I do, chobani yogurt container is among them. I usually use it for flower and vegetable seedling before transplanting to the garden. Looking from its shape, it pretty much resembles the flower planter which brought this idea of making mini flower and planter for my baby’s room decoration.

I used single crochet following the shape, just add or reduce the count whenever needed.

The original flower pattern is found here, but I modified mine by adding rows to get bigger flower.
