Crochet Pattern: Mushroom Applique

By Emilee Gettle – 2 Comments
My family and I love vintage clothing. On the weekend you can find us at an antique store or estate sale. While my husband snatches up old tools, I like to sift through boxes, baskets and trunks of old linens. Years ago clothing, quilts and even dishtowels were an art form! Crocheted appliques are a quick and easy way to embelish and personalize your linens. The time commitment is slim to none. It’s a project with instant gratification! This week I created a little mushroom for you to add to your children’s clothing, linens or to make a bobby pin with!

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 1″ (3 cm) long, 3/4″ (2 cm) wide

Red Fingering Yarn (approximately 1 yards)
White Fingering Yarn (approximately 1 yard)
Crochet Hook 7 (1.50 mm)
Red Thread
White Embroidery Floss

3 sc stitches = 1/2″ (1 cm)

Crochet Pattern: Mushroom Applique

Mushroom Stem (Make 1)
Row 1: with white, ch 4, sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across: 3 sc

Using red thread and a needle, sew the mushroom cap to the stem. Then, with 6-strands of white embroidery floss, embroider french knots onto the mushroom cap.
