Recycling, upcycling, making something out of nothing – we, crafters, know these terms very well! Whether it’s about upcycling your beloved cardigan from grandma or using up leftover yarn ends, crocheting comes with a lot of solutions. Appliques are easy to make and very versatile, especially if you have kids at home. What’s the best way to cover up a stubborn stain or a hole in pants or jacket? That’s right, Lovely Animal Appliques comes to the rescue! Adorable crocheted animals are worked flat – good news for beginners. You can hone your skills in making different shapes, while creating cute creatures. After you’ve made the body, simple embroidery will give them necessary characteristics, such as stripes for a tiger, or sleepy owl eyes. If you don’t want to sew them on anything, you can make them into brooches, or join in a garland. It will look stunning in nursery! Check out the examples below and get inspired!
