This is one for my senior girls! Since this project relies on silk flowers instead of crocheted, they wont be intimidated by tiny stitches. We always have odd flowers and leaves in our Crafts Stash bins. And with all the sides worked in white, we just need some skein ends for the edges. Instead of finishing as the pattern suggests, Ill be manning the hot glue gun!

I like this...colors and flowers may be changed for different holidays and events. I would definitely make this for myself as well as for friends and family!

I really like this and would make it for myself or for friends & family with a variety of colors and flowers.

I love it...looking old is matter of opinion = ) haha I agree w/ Mary Melody, it may well be because I too am old! I would love to make it for me, but know that would never happen so it would certainly end up as a lovely gift!!

I'd make it for a gift but change the colors for Christmas and put snowflakes on the sides or something Christmasy

I would make one for me & one for my friend. Maybe with different flowers....or, change the theme to Christmas or Thanksgiving or???

I would make it for myself as well as for a gift. But I would love to change it a little and actually crochet the flowers as well. I don't really like the idea of the silk flowers being attached. There are plenty of really gorgeous crocheted flowers to make and I would put some of them on the sides and on the corners.

I love it! I don't think it looks old at all. (Maybe that's because I'm old.) I have the perfect place for it in my bathroom. Isn't funny how every one is different. I think that's probably a good thing. :-)

I love it. I like the idea of mixed textures and media. I will do the crocheting and let my sister put some flowers on to match. Thank you for this pattern.

I agree, too old fashioned looking. I'm not into hot pink and fake flowers. But it could be used as a pattern to fit my style.

I would not make it, just too old looking. Try a more modern wool. But get rid of those flowers.

No, I wouldn't make it or give it to a friend. Maybe with some pretty crocheted pansies or something not so 80's looking.

Hey, why not both of us? If it's good enough for me, I know my friends will love it.
