These patterns for the heart-shaped Mickey Mouse Crochet Appliqué and Minnie Mouse Crochet Applique were inspired by our recent visit to Disneyland.
After our trip my 6-yo son asked me: “Mama, what do you think – is Mickey Mouse real or he is just an actor dressed in a costume?”
I decided to find out first what my son is thinking and asked him: “What do you think, is he real or not?”
My son said: “I think Mickey Mouse is real. Because there are Mickey’s Toontown, Mickey’s house, Mickey is the most important person in whole Disneyland and because I love him!”
I couldn’t disagree with such a statement and I created these Minnie and Mickey Mouse Crochet Appliqués for those of you who love Mickey, Minnie and Disneyland too!
