Ever since I designed my African Violet pattern in 2009, I’ve been steadily building my collection of crocheted plants in crocheted pots. I love how they look realistic, but not in a tacky plastic-faux-plant way – they’re obviously handcrafted.
Whenever I give a crocheted plant as a gift, it’s always really well received. And they’re so much more convenient than real plants:
- They’re always in bloom
- They don’t need sunlight
- You don’t even need to remember to water them!
Now, word of my crochet pot plants has spread beyond the crochet world and my designs have started a trend in home decorating circles. In the past couple of months Homemaker (UK) and MiCasa (Spain) have included some of my crocheted plant designs in their home dec suggestions:
If you’ve ever admired my plant patterns but wondered how well they’d work for decorating your home or office, giving as a gift, or to sell online or at craft fairs, you no longer have to take my word for it!
The masses have spoken, and crocheted plants are officially on-trend and in demand – and that’s good news for everyone 🙂
So, how about picking up a plant pattern or two and getting in on the trend?!
