2 Crochet Lips Appliques for Photobooth Props

by | All Designs, Crochet, Free Patterns, Kids & Toys

Here’s another of my #palettecleanser projects, little projects that take little time and little yarn, but give big satisfactions and hopefully, big smiles too – pun intended! I hope you find lots of fun uses for these crochet lips appliques!

I originally made them for a larger project, but when I shared them on Instagram, a friend asked if I was making them for photo props. I hadn’t actually though of that use, but yeah, sure! I used Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton, which is mercerized cotton yarn. It’s listed as a worsted weight 4, but I find it to be a bit thinner than other worsted weight yarns, yet not as thin as a DK. Used with an F/3.75mm hook, I can work enough stitches to provide detail without having the lips end up being too large. And what a vibrant red this is too!

There’s not much to the pattern itself. Basically, you work a whole bunch of chains, work a bunch of simple stitches down one side of the chain, then work a bunch more simple stitches up the other side of the chain. Your work may warp a bit, so if you’d like it flat, just soak it in some cold water, and then lay it out flat to dry. You can also pin it down* to achieve the shape you want.

Anyways, that’s it. Hope you like it!

    I made your kiss lips pattern but took it down a size whereby when it stated sc I did slip; hdc became sc; dc became hdc; triple became dc. With an F hook and a thin worsted, it turned out to be actual lip kiss size. I love it. It will be a little signature on a blanket I’m making – perhaps (unless made for a baby) I’ll put this on all the blankets I crochet. 🙂 Thanks; will check out your Ravelry and Etsy.
