Applique Free Crochet Pattern
Make this Lips or Kisses applique and Cozy for bags, hats, sweaters, towels, even St. Patrick’s Day items. “Kiss Me.” It’s ultra cute on hats and I wish I had something to share now, but I’ll have to dig my hats out or make one just to show you how cute it is. Now that ‘summer’ has hit in Austin, we won’t see hats until next January.
