Ideas on how to use these appliques...
*These would be great to apply to any project.
*You can add them to kitchen towels,
*turn them into a keychain or fridge magnet.
*You can also make several and make a garland.
*Attach a ribbon to make them into bookmarks.

Length from bottom to cherry approx. 2.75”
Width from its widest point approx. 2.75"
...but they can vary based on yarn and hook size.
