This flower pot is the cutest! Just looking at the photos makes me wanna squish it! I originally made these little hydrangeas for Mother’s Day because they’re mine and my mom’s favorite flowers. But flowers are appreciated year round, am I right? This would make a great, easy gift for birthdays, anniversaries, just because (!!!), holidays – you name it!
Speaking of holidays… Let’s take a moment to imagine these in a bright red and white to mimic poinsettias… *gasps at my own thought and proceeds to order more yarn*

Other Amigurumi patterns I LOVE! (and you should too!)
Amigurumi crochet is a simple method we use to create 3D objects out of yarn. Wild, right? At first, I thought amigurumi was super complicated and intricate – while it can be a little time consuming, it’s no more complicated than crocheting any other project beyond a super beginner level.
I knew I wanted to make a flower pot that wasn’t too large (I don’t have all year to make this thing, after all) but not too small. Just the right size – very close to a real pot of african violets you’d place on your bookshelf or desk! I loved using pastel colors for a feminine looking flower, and I’m so pleased with how this little amigurumi project came together.
I chose to use Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice for the “flower pot” portion of the project, the color called Toffee is the perfect warm tone brown. I used Lion Brand’s mini skeins of acrylic yarn similar to Vanna called DIYarn for the flowers and leaves. This yarn is perfect for this project because you don’t need nearly as much yardage for these elements, but the weight of the yarn and the color scheme offered matches really well with Vanna’s Choice.
It’s like these yarns were made for this project!
