HOW TO CROCHET A SUN APPLIQUE

A sun applique is a great addition to blankets or crochet quiet books and more! I created this yellow sun applique so that I could stitch it onto a baby blanket for a little added sunshine for the baby! It also adds texture for them to feel and play with during tummy time!
