Each applique will be shared separately to be easier for you to get the pattern because this one is really long one.  We have 9  crochet appliques ā€“ Koala applique , Lion applique , Panda applique , Hippo , Rhino , Elephant , Parrot applique Sloth applique and Crocodile applique. As you know we have so much applique themed blanket and we really appreciate your positive feedback for all of them. If this is your first visit here I am sure you will like our Jungle friends appliques baby blanket / Undersea Sweetness appliques blanket or / Forest friends appliques blanket 

The Yarn :

For all my applique I always prefer thinner yarn. The crochet Appliques have so much details and this way it is easier to crochet and attach them. Of course you can use different weight yarn but my suggestion is category 3 weight yarn, DK ( double knit ).

NOTES:

When you finish all parts of appliques, lay them on flat surface and use pins to secure them on right place. It is very important to pin the appliques before sewing so you will know exactly how it will look when you sew it on your project. When you like the layout off your appliques you can sew it on your crochet project.

If you will use the appliques on granny square blanket, sew the appliques onto the squares then join the granny squares into blanket. It will be easier to do and the applique will be more accurately placed.
