DIY Crochet Patches

Miss Kellie is one active kid, and even though she's getting bigger right now I have four pairs of pants with holes in the knees. I put a cute patch on a few, but didn't want them all to look the same.  
Last night I finally got some inspiration - and started on her 'skinny jeans'.  
They looked like this:

Instead of a patch I thought I'd crochet a cute flower to go over the hole.  But the poor thing looks so lonely - and I couldn't leave it with just two, because these things are much better in threes.  With Sugar n' Cream yarn I crocheted and attached each of the embellishments - including a few random stitches to pull it all together.  Miss Kellie kept asking for 'just one more', but we stopped at four.  Adding a little stitch near the pockets as well.

SUCCESS!!  She loves them!
