Back to school season comes up fast, and with it comes new backpacks, different teachers, and first impressions. This Happy Apple Crochet Applique can help with all three. When it comes to backpacks, many kids will have the same taste. Make sure your child's backpack is never mixed up with this crochet applique. With one look, everyone will know whose it is. Saying "thank you" in advance to teachers is always a great gesture, and the gift of a crochet applique sewn onto a pouch or other project is the perfect way to begin a school year and to make a great first impression.
Apples are one of the most popular foods to crochet. This isn't just because of their popularity for kitchen decor. They're also great for teacher gifts, the beginning of fall, and anything school-themed. And they can be used in educational presentations about healthy eating. This free crochet apple pattern is available as a download through Ravelry by designer Kitty Adventures.
The next three crochet cactus patterns in this round up might look a little familiar. After all, these are the same three cacti that we saw above—an armless young saguaro, a prickly pear, and a barrel cactus. However, the crochet patterns are completely different.
These crochet patterns are tiny. These are particularly great if you want to:
- Quickly complete an instant gratification project or last minute gift
- Use up small bundles of yarn, especially if you have green in your stash
- Want to make a cactus keychain or magnet
Although they are small, these crochet cactus patterns pack a big punch. In addition to single crochet, you'll get the opportunity to use double crochet. Plus you'll get to use both sc and dc post stitches. Not to mention, the added flower on top of each little crochet cactus is the perfect pop of color.

"Check out these floral crochet blanket patterns! My Grandmother used to knit and crochet the most amazing gifts every year. I have several of her blankets in my hope chest. It’s sadly not a skill that I ever managed to be good at. But, my daughter loves to crochet and knit! I’ve seen so many gorgeous floral crochet blanket patterns in my life. Each year for Christmas, we would receive a blanket that my Grandmother lovingly crocheted for us. The colors and patterns were always different and I always admired the time and attention she put into each one. These crocheted blankets are gifts that I’ll treasure for the rest of my life and then pass them down to my children so they can enjoy them."
