Here in the States, Memorial Day and Independence Day are just around the corner and I don’t know about you but I love to crochet for these holidays. I love to crochet little red, white and blue accessories to decorate my house! I have prepared for you a very quick and super easy crochet star applique pattern. Crocheters of any level can follow along with my video tutorial or written pattern and be well on their way to a basket full of little stars.
Crochet star appliques are perfect for making garland, embellishing hats or blankets and even mixing with other crafts. I plan on sewing my stars onto burlap and framing it to hang above the fire place. How would you use yours?
