Working in 3D with Threads -- 3-Dimensional Flowers!!

In 2002, when I discovered the joy of crocheting more complicated designs in Threads, I had started on a journey that still continues.

I started by getting patterns, reading them and doing them. At first, I had to read each step/row of the pattern and do it. As time went on and I became more familiar with certain styles and ways of creating certain effects, I went faster. At one point, I started putting together some of my own designs -- especially in Filet Crochet and Pineapple designs, which I continue to this day.

One of the types of Thread Art that I learned and now love to do is 3-dimensional pieces. Mostly I do 3-dimensional flowers of different types with the most popular being Roses. I also do textured or 3-dimensional leaves.

3-dimensional flowers are quite popular amongst people who do crafts -- so much so that some people sell them for other crafters to use.

But I make all my own in the style I choose for each project I do.

Ovet the years, I have done quite a few projects that have 3-dimensional flowers of one kind or another on them.

I have a Section in my Etsy Shop just for my Designs In Fiber with 3D FLOWERS (though there might from time to time be a few in my FREE / REDUCED SHIPPING Section).

Here are a few photos of some of the different styles of Thread projects I have done with 3D Flowers, from over the past 6 years. At the very end is a Slidewhow of my Public Album on Picasa: "3D Flower Thread Crochet".
