I have always had a preference for turtles. Already as a child I was fascinated by these creatures. Now I’ve added a self-designed applique to my small collection of crocheted turtles.
The crocheted turtle applique is not flat but slightly three-dimensional with a convex shell. The turtle shell can be decorated with different designs. In the free PDF file I introduce the spiral and the ruffled circle.
I like the fact that turtles appliques can be used for both girls and boys. This small applique can be sewn on t-shirts, caps and backpacks to change single color clothing to individual pieces.
You find the pattern with crochet chart and detailed information about the decorations of the turtle applique in this free PDF file: Crochet turtle applique free pattern.
I think there are a lot of possibilities to work with this turtle appliques – you can see two more in the gallery below. A square with a turtle center and turtles with an overlay shield.
