This pattern can be worked as an applique or a square! The applique/motif is created first, then the square portion. You can use this same pattern to create themed items! Use the square to create blankets or totes, and the applique to embellish hats or other projects.
I also enjoy reading, gardening, movies.....I started crocheting at 10 yrs old, but didnt pick up the hook for about 30 yrs and retaught myself.
