Crochet Appliqué Tote Bag
This cotton carry-all is much more eye-catching with a colorful embellishment. The trick? We dyed a simple doily and affixed it to the front with spray-on adhesive for a crochet-inspired appliqué.
This idea comes from our friend Manal Aman. This project has many possibilities particularly considering if you use round doilies or rectangular ones. Round doilies create great necklines for shirts where as rectangular ones can create great pockets. In addition to embellishing tote bags, you can embellish shirts, summer hats, scarfs, pillowcases and linens, even small muslin bags for gifting jewelry.
