Pinwheel Petals

A Button Flower Series

Following the Petal Party collection, I still had buttons I wanted to make something with. Plus I didn’t get to use the pretty leaf buttons I purchased at the same time as the Petal Party buttons. I also needed a design to add to the flip side of the functional crochet bag that I need. I also need a small case to store my crochet hooks and other paraphernalia I use when crocheting. Pinwheel Petals will work well for both these projects.

Pinwheel Petals collection doesn’t focus on large buttons but rather small ones. Because this design can  be divided into four quarter wreath sections, it opens up other possibilities not available with Petal Party. The two collections compliment each other giving you many possibilities to use your beautiful buttons...or no buttons at all.


I’ve added small buttons about this design

This is the same design without any buttons

Clutch Bag

My new bag I needed to store my crochet hooks and other paraphernalia I use when crocheting. I added antique mother of pearl buttons and pearls to the flower centers.

At 4 x 8.5 inches, it has 3 pockets and a wristlet to make it more functional for other purposes should I need it to be.

My favorite color combination - pink, green, and white!

Pattern available!

The Back

Hardanger On-Point


The inside has 3 pockets


The old crochet needle bag I made in the 1970’s. I’ve kept all my needles, etc in there all this time even as I collected more of them. I’m thrilled to have a new larger bag and with 3 pockets

Pattern Available!

Mariner's Compass Collection

Dona’s Clutch

This is the first clutch I made - the prototype. After making it I decided to make them 1 inch wider and change the location of the velcro.  Otherwise the same as the final pattern.

I added Mother of Pearl buttons and pearls from my Mother’s button box and gave it to my niece, Dona. Needless to say she cried as did her son, Jeremy.



Designs Details

I’ve divided up the design not just for smaller hoops but for more creative leeway. I also added some other designs for even more possibilities
