Stick A Flower On ItBy Veronica Smith – 9 Comments
So you’re in a hurry for a personalized present or maybe you have lots of presents to do and not enough time. Do you need lots of cute little things in a hurry, maybe for your child’s scout group or her little friends, the office people or play group mums who you’d like to give a little gift to at Christmas?
Then all you need to do is stick a flower on it. Figuratively speaking.
You can make crochet flowers, music notes, hearts or pretty well any other shape. Applique comes in a range of shapes such as car’s, dinosaurs, animals, hearts, bells, smiley faces and lots more. Crochet fridge magnets or brooches minus the magnet or pin make wonderful applique’s as well. Let your imagination run wild.
Stitch or glue them to just about anything you want. Purchase a headband, a beanie, a hat or a simple item of clothing. A nice hard covered diary or address book can be given a classy update and makes a quick affordable present. Purchased cushions and baby blankets get a quick face-lift and have a personal touch. The first thing that comes to mind for a lot of us is flowers when it comes to giving something a face-lift but ‘boy’ things can be attached to items for men big and small. The afore mentioned diary for example for the bigger variety of male and something on a sweater or hat for the littler ones. Crochet golf clubs, cars, coffee mugs and associated boy items.
Let your imagination run wild. What else have you embellished with crochet?
Crochet Spot has a whole heap of patterns available to get your creative juices flowing. So start searching. The Crochet Spot Store has patterns available for Sport Balls, Animals, Flowers, Halloween , and Christmas Appliques – Set #1 & #2. Just to name a few.
………Make them ALL and attach them to something – everything.
PS – I know my pictures have flowers and nothing else however you have to forgive me as I am going through a “flowery” stage.
