Sometimes handmade crafts can take a lot of tiime. This Flowering Buttons is one that is fairly time consuming thought it is not vey hard too make.
The scarf is make of large crochet flowers; each made separately and to be joined later. For each large flower, make 2 smaller flowers - here I have made different colored smaller flowers to each large flower. The smaller flowers are then attached onto each side of the large flower; each small flower is topped with a button of your choice.
Once the large+2 small flower pieces are completed and neatened, then join the large flowers together to make the long scarf.
I generally don't like this kind of work because when making handmade crafts like crochet and knitting, I find the joining and endless sewing the most tedious. Especially if you have to start, neaten, finish multiple times.
However the final result is sometimes worth all the effort!
As with most handmade items, a bit of loving care will ensure the longevity and optimal upkeep of the piece.
