From turtles to hearts, or flowers and leaves to rainbows, appliqués are small flat crocheted pieces that make perfect embellishments. Appliqués are so versatile! Here are some ideas to get you started:
• Stitch them to a blanket, cushion, bag or sweater.
• Add a pin back or barrette to turn them into an accessory.
• Combine them into a hanging decoration, mobile, or garland.
• Make them with crochet thread and an appropriately small hook to turn them into miniature embellishments or jewellery components.
Note: This list also includes patterns where parts could be used as an appliqué, for example the flowers from the potted plants or the snowflakes from the snow stars.
