    This is very cute. Would work well as an applique on a hat, shirt, pants, etc… Even a magnet glued to the back would work.

    I may try this and do the rays in different lengths – two or maybe three different. Darlene

    This is a wonderful applique and really perks up any plain baby blanket. They are a slight pain in the neck to sew on to the blanket, but it is well worth the effort. The blanket now is beautiful.

    I recently flew home from a trip sitting in the middle seat of the row. I made two of these during the flight and the folks on either side of me were fascinated and impressed by what I crocheted. It looks to those who don’t crochet like it is difficult to do, but it is so easy.
