3 Embroidery Stitches to Embellish Your Next Crochet Project
Crocheting tiny appliqué pieces and stitching them onto your project allows you to make perfectly symmetrical features (you can flip them over for mirror images) without hassle. Moving the eyes closer together or farther apart or even tilting the eyes one way or the other just a fraction of an inch can dramatically change your creature’s personality or expression, so it’s a bonus to be able to play with the feature placement before you sew the pieces on.
If you have an old skirt (medium length that’s not super fitted), try adding a crochet top to it to make it a dress. This also works well if you have a piece of fabric that you really love but don’t know what to do with it. Crochet a small yoke for the top, and attach the skirt or fabric to make it a dress. If your fabric has a lot of patterning in it, keep the dress yoke to a single color.
