It is June and it is strawberry season. I love strawberries and can eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner! And how could I miss making a strawberry appliqué? I would like to share with you this simple Heart Strawberry Appliqué. It is easy to make and very cute, but it is not as tasty as a real one!
Have you noticed that sometimes strawberries have shape of a heart?
My Crochet Strawberry Applique is made from crocheted hearts of two different sizes. To make it just crochet hearts according to the instructions and then sew them together as shown in the picture.
Finished Size: Crochet Strawberry Applique is about 2-1/8” (5.5 cm).
– cotton crochet thread size 3 in red
– cotton crochet thread size 10 in green
– cotton crochet thread size 3 in black or white – for the seeds
– crochet hook D/3 – 3.25 mm
– crochet hook size 8/1.5 mm
– black 11/0 glass seed beads or beads of your choice – optional
We will need to make one large heart for the Strawberry fruit and three small hearts for the leafy part. One small heart will have a stem.
1. With cotton crochet thread size 3 in red and hook D/3 – 3.25 mm make one Large Heart (see Instructions for the Crochet Hearts Applique Pattern) for the Strawberry fruit.
2. Leafy part – With cotton crochet thread size 10 in green and hook 8/1.5 mm make two Small Hearts (see Instructions for the Crochet Hearts Applique Pattern).
3. With cotton crochet thread size 10 in green and hook 8/1.5 mm make one Small Heart with Stem:
Ch 4; make all of the next stitches into the fourth Ch from hook (the first Ch made) working under both loops – 3 DC, 3 HDC, Ch 1, DC (Heart point) , Ch 9 for the stem, Sl St into 2nd Ch from the hook and into each of next 7 Chs, Sl St into top of last DC, 3 HDC, 3 DC, Ch 3, Sl St, Ch 1.
Fasten off and weave in the ends.
4. Using my picture as a guide, sew the hearts together.
5. Make seeds – you can make them black or white, you can embroider them or sew on seed beads instead.
Enjoy your Crochet Strawberry Applique!
