I am really into ruffles lately... something about their fluffy, fun nature makes me want to put them on everything! With Easter approaching, wouldn't it be great to make a Ruffly flower corsage for that special lady in your life? or even yourself? Pick your favorite color of yarn, and a little bit of green for the leaves, and you're on your way! Doesn't take long :)
Some yarn in the color of your choice
Some green yarn for the leaves (Optional)
Hot glue or needle/thread
Picot: Chain 3, sl st in the first of the three chains.
Make magic ring
Rnd 1: Ch2, 10 hdc in ring. Sl st in first hdc. (10 HDC)
Rnd 2: Ch2, 2 hdc in same st as join. *3 hdc in next stitch* repeat from *to* in each hdc around. (30 HDC)
Rnd 3: Ch2, 2 hdc in same st as join. *3 hdc in next stitch* repeat from *to* in each hdc around. (90 HDC)
Rnd 4: Ch2, 2 hdc in same st as join. *3 hdc in next stitch* repeat from *to* in each hdc around. (270 HDC)
And that's it! Fasten off and admire!

Now hot glue (or sew) your leaves to the back of your rose. Then, cut a circle of felt the size of the back of your rose, hot glue it to the back. Now sew a pinback in the center of your felt circle, and you're done!!
Isn't it pretty!? Such a great TV watching project! :)
