I crocheted scrubbies and pins in April of last year for a flower swap at Crochetville.
These daisy dish scrubbies were fun to make. I liked the way the cupped petals took shape. I must admit, by the time I got to the third one, I didn’t think I’d ever make it to the last petal!

It’s funny, I distinctly remember where I bought the plastic scrubbies even though they’d been lying around in my craft supplies for some time: the yellow ones came from a corner grocery at the beach and the red one from a dollar store.
The trick was evenly spacing the first round, since scrubbies aren’t always the same size. I used stitch markers to divide them into quarters. Is that obsessive?
The one with the red center is my favorite color combo, so it’s getting a close-up.
Oh, and how can I not plug the site that helped me find this pattern? CrochetPatternCentral.com, always my first stop for free pattern searching!
Whoops, mommy has been paged! (That would be me.) (I’m tellin’ ya, he should’ve slept for at least another 45 minutes!) So I’m outta time for now. I’ll be back another day with the flower pins!
