Strawberry Appliqué

By JC Designs
As you can see in image 1, the strawberry on the left I use tiny white beads and
the one in the right I embroidery the seeds with white yarn.

  They would be great for applying to any projects or as home decor for example decorating kitchen curtains, dishcloths, etc. or making them into fridge magnets.

SIZE
The strawberry measures approx. 2” inches from its widest point and 3" long but size can vary based on yarn and hook size.

MATERIALS
*Crochet hook size: 2.5mm & 3.0mm
*Worsted weight yarn: small amounts of red, green and white
*Tiny little white beads (optional)
*Hot Glue (optional)
*Tapestry Needle
*Thread: green
*Sewing Needle

  Embroidery the seeds with white yarn or you can use some really tiny little white beads for the seeds. If your going to make it into a fridge magnet glue a small magnet in the back.
I made them into fridge magnets to hold my son's (he's 5years old) masterpieces. :)

Have a nice crochet time!

Thank you so much for this tutorial! I used your leaf pattern (well, kind of) to finish off my strawberry applique and it worked perfectly to cover up my unsuccessful batik. I can't wait to try more of your applique ideas, they are awesome!
