Appliques, Appliques, and More Appliques

When I crochet, I like to make fun, quick, and easy projects that I can use for just about everything from jewelry to embellishments for clothing. This is why I love crocheting appliques so much. I have not yet found an applique that takes more than fifteen minutes to crochet up, and the cuteness of it all is so uber addicting. Plus they’re a great way to get rid of yarn remnants that are not enough to do anything else with.

I get the vast majority of my applique patterns from my absolute favorite go-to source for all things free and crochet: Just check out the Applique and Fridgies sections for all the cute little thingies you could ever want to make.

I all too quickly found myself with a drawer full of these cute little things and absolutely nothing to do with them. So I decided to get creative and just start sticking ’em on stuff. Here are a few of my machinations:

I added a bright orange octopus to this teal tee which totally brings this outfit alive.

IMG_0847I embellished a plain white tee with this super cute rainbow and shooting star applique.

So don’t be afraid to go a little insane making these cuties. I’m quite sure you’ll find a use for them eventually.
