Flower Square

I came across this Flower Power Bag at Eclectic Gipsyland on Etsy a few months ago and got a serious case of the wanties! But this bag was WAY out of my price range. So I went on a hunt for a similar pattern.
 And much to my suprise I came across this Flower Square Pattern at Rose Hip. How lucky! I have worked up a few of these pretty little flower squares. They are a bit labor intensive but worth the effort. I still have visions of having my very own flower square bag. 
Beata made these floral pillows using her flower square pattern. Aren't they lovely! She is also sharing another colorful, inpiring Flickr photo collection you won't want to miss. Find the pattern here.


  1. That bag is beautiful, so I went to the Etsy store to check out her other stuff and - Blimey! - you weren't kidding about the price. Now I'm a firm believer in being paid properly for the work you do but it's pretty impressive that there are people out there willing to pay that much. I must be doing something wrong....

  2. I suppose not as much as I was expecting..but more than I'd pay for something I could make myself.

    And oh dear, I do have to say those plastic dolls are hidieous.

  3. That's the problem with making bags to sell. I bet she has at least $50 in yarn in this. When you think of it that way it's not overpriced. I never make a profit when I crochet a bag, but do it because I love it. The last bag I made for someone they wanted this expensive yarn, so I spent $60 in yarn, then they decided they didn't want it. I was out $60 bucks and the bag is still sitting in my etsy shop. I've just about cut out making them.

    But it is very, very pretty and looks very well made!

  4. Morning Sara- love your daily collection of fun projects. Question...I went to a link from you which led me to another link which led me to another...you get the drift. Found a tutorial for a "magic circle" to keep round projects tight in the middle- no whole. Now I can't find it again. Shame on me for not bookmarking it. I was talking to my fellow "HOOKERS" last night & everyone looked at me like I was an alien!? Got any ideas where a "Magic Circle" tutorial might be??? -Jennifer

  8. the bag is very beautiful...I can see why you want that bag. the pattern is great, I'm gonna try it.

  9. Not only do I love the bag, but also the cushions and the patchwork scrap quilt they are sitting on.


  10. Funny that you should post this today Sara! I was itching to crochet, I hadn't done so for a little while (a couple of months) and I made Beata's flower square. I love making these, they are addictive.

    Yes, the bag is a tad expensive but with the work and yarn that goes into it... Let's just say it is a LOT of work but when we can make it ourselves we do not want to pay that much for it... now to find the time...

    I will share the bag on my blog later on today - www.colourofpomegranates.com

    Keep up the great work! thanks. Tamar

  11. Glad you found it Jennifer. Thanks for sharing the link!
