How to Crochet This Flower:

Top Layer of Flower: Crochet this popcorn flower using Bernat Softee baby yarn in the bright pink color called "Prettiest Pink." My sample flower measures about 2 1/4 inches.

Lower Layer of Flower: Crochet this flower using a medium weight yarn and a size H crochet hook. My sample flower measures about 3 5/8 inches. I used the "Bone" color Caron Simply Soft yarn, which is a delightful tan color with a hint of sheen.

Stitch the Flowers Together: Using a tapestry needle and Bernat Softee yarn in the "Prettiest Pink" color, sew your flowers together, with the smaller pink flower on top.

Embellish the Flower: (Optional.) I finished my flower by adding a pretty cutwork button in the center. Then I glued an additional embellishment on top to cover the stitch. The embellishment I used is by Accent Scrapbooking; the product name is "Pearl Flowers, 4mm."

I used Zip Dry adhesive to glue on the embellishment. There are probably other adhesives that would work for this, but I've been pretty satisfied with Zip Dry overall.

The button I used is a Cut-Outs, #2405. It's pretty neat up close; the button actually has little cut-out areas. I purchased it at a JoAnn craft store.

If you want your flower to be machine washable, omit the pearl embellishment, and be careful with your button selection; be sure to choose a button that can withstand machine washing.
