In honour of the coming of spring, today's blog is all about handmade flowers. I'll start with some tutorials and then move on to kits.
Crochet Flower Squares Tutorial on Rose Hip
This crochet pattern is handy because the finished flower is surrounded by a square meaning it can easily be turned into a cushion cover, blanket, etc.
Red Ganutell Flower Tutorial on Ganutell Blossoms
Ganutell originated in Malta and is used to make flowers from thread, beads and wire. It's on my to-do list of crafts I want to try.

This tutorial gives basic instructions to make a knitted flower which you can then adapt to create the look you want.
Folded Ribbon Rose Tutorial on Craft Fairy Designs
