Iron Applique



Iron Applique
Can I use a traditional cloth or iron-on appliqué on a crocheted fabric?

I am running out of time and will likely not be able to make the crocheted appliques I had intended to make for each square in a baby blanket I am working on. I was intending to Put an different animal in each square and I could still do that if I use purchased appliques rather than making my own. So I guess my question is will I be able to secure a cloth applique neatly and tightly to my crochet, the squares I want to add the appliques to are done in a tight half-double crochet and how would I go about attaching the cloth if it is even a viable option?
I already have the squares crocheted that I want to add the appliques to.

I’m not too certain about how neatly that can be done [fabric or iron-on on crochet]. You could try one out & see if it works. But first, try to give an edging to the applique to avoid fraying. The closed overlocking stitch on a sewing machine would be a quick technique to outline the motif on desired cloth. Then cut very close to the outer edge of the stitch. Then I’d recommend hand sewing them to the squares since you’d h ave greater dexterity & control.
Would felt or flannel be a good option too?

Here are a few ideas that, depending on your circumstances, May come in handy ?!

– crochet as many animals as you can within your time constraints. Then count these & arrange them on alternate squares [or even further apart if you have very few motifs] on the blanket. This way, you will have the satisfaction of partly fulfilling your intention.

– if possible, make the entire blanket & gift it with an “IOU”/promise that the animals “are on their way”. Try to finish up the animals & then attach them later yourself by borrowing the blanket back Or hand them over separately.

– maybe you could garner the help of someone you know who can crochet the animals while you work on the blanket?

– instead of animal motifs, how about making simple floral motifs to adorn your blanket squares?
In fact, if time permits, you could have an assortment of animals, flowers, etc. That would look like a deliberate design too.

– can you use fabric paints on the yarn ? If you can, you could try painting the animals on to the squares. It obviously wouldn’t be as smooth as on plain fabric, but it Would be pretty novel & textured.

Hope some of these options appeal to you
All the very best :-)
