I create three-dimensional botanical crocheted appliques to transform thrifted winter coats into wearable art pieces. I crochet and sew vines, leaves, flowers, buds, branches, grasses, moss, and just about anything that grows onto the outer layer of my coats.
But these appliques can easily be stitched or glued onto backpacks, lampshades, fabric room dividers, drapes, quilts, afghans, and throw pillows.
This pattern is for an asymmetrical botanical applique design with leaves and flowers. Anyone with experienced beginner or intermediate crochet skills can make this successfully. The arrangement has curled flower petals and somewhat ruffled leaves with lots of texture. It's a very organic, realistic, and wild-looking design.
