Welcome to 365 Crochet Flowers Bouquet Project!
I set myself a big challenge – design and post instructions for 365 crochet patterns inspired by flowers.
Designing a pattern for a flower is a long process – it starts with research on the geographical region where it originates, research on the anatomy of the plant, finding royalty free photos that I could use on the website. After the research step is done, the sketching comes next, then yarns and colours selection, and finally designing and crocheting the flower. The process is long, taking between 4 to 8 hours. I've posted the majority of the patterns for free, while the ones that took the longest time, I've posted them for sale. You will find these patterns following the link Buy Crochet Patterns.
I spend lots of time selecting the next flower to become a crochet flower pattern and I found that photos are the best source of inspiration. Some of the flower photos were taken by Louise Docker, a truly gifted Australian-based macro photographer.Some were taken by viewers from Ravelry and Facebook and some by me. I always welcome suggestions, so please don't be shy, drop me a message, tell me what is your favourite flower, or your state flower, or your national flower and I'll get onto it.
I've also started a group on Ravelry and called it 365 Crochet Flowers Project , so if you're interested in showing off your creations based on my patterns alongside other crochet enthusiasts, you are more than WELCOME TO JOIN!
You are welcome to crochet the flowers following the pattern instructions, but not to alter and/or sell the patterns.

I've designed the website initially to showcase my work, but due to increased number of enquiries, I've decided to include online shopping facilities for my two collections "Romancing the Lace" and "Meli Aran".
