As I live in an area where it rains a lot, I couldn’t miss creating a pattern for crochet Clouds and Raindrops applique. The rainy season here starts around October and lasts until June. When I was making these clouds and raindrops, it was raining outside my window. Doesn’t it sound funny – making more clouds and raindrops during the rain?

These crochet clouds and raindrops will look great on pillows and blankets, you can use them to embellish children’s clothes, or glue them on canvas and create beautiful wall decor for a nursery or kids’ room. I used these appliques for my Rainy Day Wall Art.
You can experiment with different colors, add google eyes if you wish and you will have a cute rainy weather applique!
