Little flowers with leaves - free crochet pattern

I already have a flower applique pattern here published a few years back, but it had 6 petals instead of 5. Also for this pattern, I added leaves to complete the design.
Using scraps of thread, this is a very practical embellishment. However, this is so little, measuring only 1 1/8 inches from one leaf end to the other. You could make bigger flowers by using yarn and bigger hook.

These little flowers look cuter here in the picture, so I'm very pleased with this shot ;) I'm also glad I had something to post here today... Thanks for looking!
