Crochet appliques-small crochet projects
Probably each of you has crocheted or attempted to crochet an applique once in your crochet journey.
And why not?
They are small, easy to make, and require a small amount of yarn. Another bonus is that they are portable.
What to do with crochet appliques?
There are endless possibilities to use a crochet applique. You can attach them to crochet hats, headbands, blankets, and bags.
Some of my first crochet blanket patterns are based on crochet appliques. For example, I crocheted a few jungle animal appliques and turned them into a themed Safari blanket. Cool right?
Or you can use them as embellishments for crochet toys as we did. We used the mini butterfly applique in our crochet Butterfly gnome.
