Crochet flowers are good projects for beginners to start with. Why?

Because they are small projects that will make you feel accomplished and not frustrated. Moreover, you can see the end result pretty quickly and make a bunch of them. Thus, you can always pin them on some gift cards and show off your skills to friends and family.

What to do with crochet rose applique?

You can always use the crochet rose applique to add some personality to your crochet hats or blankets. Use them for scarves and bag embellishments. Why not make an adorable charm for your backpack or a keychain?

Supplies and materials you will need to make the crochet rose applique

  • any type of yarn you have in your stash. I usually prefer cotton if I will be using the crochet rose applique on a home decor project or a bag, but if you will use it on a crochet scarf, blanket, or crochet hat it will be better to use acrylic or wool/acrylic blend yarn
  • any crochet hook size which is appropriate for your yarn
  • tapestry needle to weave ends in and to sew the crochet rose applique
