This Crochet Star Applique works up in minutes, and it is a great way to use up some of your scrap yarn. Really, any year weight with the appropriate hook size will work fine for this pattern! As an embellishment for a larger project, as a tiny hanging gift, on hair clips, on a card or as wedding favors! One tiny star, so many possibilities!
"This is a quick and easy floral gift card holder that also works great as a tea bag pocket. It's worked in a small amount of yarn making it perfect for those scraps in your stash! You can also use it to gift many things like a couple Ghirardelli chocolate squares, a stick or two of biscotti, or even non-foodie gifts like a pair of earrings on a card or small floral picks. To make your own, you'll need 30 yards of worsted weight yarn - I used Knit Picks Dishie, but any worsted weight yarn will work (though acrylic may produce a slightly larger flower). For reference, this one took me just over 45 minutes to complete. It's worked in simple single crochets and double crochets so a great project for a confident beginner."

"I have been making lots of poppy flowers in different versions lately, from poppy brooches and poppy pins, to appliques and baby blankets, but I realized I haven’t made a poppy flower design for kids that they can wear as hair accessories. So here it is, the Poppy Hair Tie! Your little one can wear these cute flowers for Remembrance day and of course, you can use them as appliques for hats, hair bands and hair clips, the possibilities are endless. I have used DK yarn and a 3mm crochet hook for these poppies and they measure about 9cm in diameter. If you change the hook size and yarn weight, you can modify the size to fit your project."
This easy crochet flower for hat can be worked up quickly using your choice of yarn and hook to make colorful and varied embellishments for scarves, hats, hair clips, headbands, bags or anything else you can think of.
