Inspiration: Blossom Trio

 Last week I talked about the Blossom Blanket, this week, I talk about the Blossom Trio!
 The three pattern set debuted in Interweave Crochet in Spring 2010 and is now available on their website.
Look at the model's t-shirt!  It matches so well! The stylist did a great job finding it!  What was I thinking?  I was thinking of how could I put flowers on the headbands but try to make them blend into the background so that it looked like one fabric.  I wanted it to almost look like a jacquard fabric.  I needed flowers that were small enough to fit on the baby headband and some bigger ones for the toddler head tie. I also incorporated partial flowers thinking that I could use up more of the foundation crochet fabric and there would be less background showing.  I also wanted to make it look more organic, like actual flowers.  Actual flowers have petals missing and are perfectly imperfect.  I think the baby headband turned out so sweet!  It has a little piece of elastic sewn on the back to help it stay snug (but not too snug!) on  baby.  Little French knots are sprinkled here and there.
