Crochet Pattern: Acorn AppliquéBy Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 8 Comments
|Signs of the season are not hard to miss. Squirrels scurry to search for acorns among the leaves while new birds arrive at our feeders to stay for winter. Inspiration is all around us; just take a look and see what inspires you. This week I introduce to you another fall appliqué to add to your collection. Appliqué’s are fun and easy ways to accessorize. And since they use so little yarn, they’re great projects for using the scraps of yarn we tend to accumulate.|
