How to Crochet: Birds, Fish, and Waves

Hi Crochet Friend!

It’s day 4 of the Creation Quiet Book CAL! I originally had about 6 appliqués to give you, but I decided that it just a bit too much. So I will be extending the CAL just one day to give everyone a bit more time. :)

So today, we will focus on making 2 birds, 2 fish, and some waves. And I have videos for the birds and fish to make it easier for you!

Learn to crochet bird, fish, and waves appliques with these free patterns and video tutorials. Quick and easy patterns that take under an hour total.
