You can really let your creativity shine when you put the finishing touches - the embellishments - on your crocheted flower. There are many different possible ways to embellish these flowers.
The photo above shows a simple, pretty, and inexpensive way to embellish the flower motif. I simply tied a bit of ribbon in a bow, and stitched it to the flower using coordinating sewing thread.
If I were going to use this flower to accessorize a washable item like a hat or scarf, I'd consider treating the cut edges of the ribbon with something to prevent the edges from unraveling. Dritz makes a product called "Fray Check" that would work, and there are other options as well.
