Crochet Rose Pins

When I first took the plunge and opened my etsy shop, and then when I sold a few items at a friends' home bazaar, I wanted to make some crochet flower pins.  I found a couple of patterns and played around with them, but none were exactly what I was looking for.  So I combined a few different patterns, added some personal touches, and this is what I came up with:

I sew on some eco friendly felt and I sew on a pin to make a great statement accessory.  I think these look great not only on a shirt, but also on a coat, scarf, or bag.  You can find them at my etsy shop.
