There’s something so satisfying about a quick and easy crochet pattern that can be finished in an hour or less. That’s part of the reason we can’t get enough of the Spring Fling Crochet Flower Applique. Originally featured in the Spring Fling Floral Tote from I Like Crochet magazine, we pulled out the flower pattern for everyone to enjoy. Aside from being quick to make, crochet flower appliques are great for a variety of uses: they’re great scrap projects and can be added to a variety of project types for a little touch of summer. We hope you enjoy!
