26 Days of Crochet Animal Alphabet Appliques

Friends and fellow crocheters, I have been working on this project for over 6 months and even though I’m still not done with it, I wanted to start sharing it with you! I couldn’t keep it a secret any longer!

I am creating a Crochet Animal Alphabet Afghan which will include all 26 of these animal appliqués. I am about halfway done with the blanket and I just finished all of the appliqués so I thought I would go ahead and share with you the individual patterns one-by-one over the next 26 days in a series I will call “26 Days of Animal Alphabet Appliqués.” Hopefully by the end of the month I will be close to finishing the entire afghan and will be able to share it with you at that time!

Over the next 26 Days I will post these patterns:
Fair warning: I have not created step-by-step picture tutorials for these (yet). My goal is to create short video tutorials for each of these so please be patient! I hope you enjoy what I have come up with so far and you are as excited about this project as I am! Happy Crocheting!

I've only recently found your blog and am having a wonderful time "catching up" to all you do! These appliques are precious! Thank you so much for sharing all you do :)

I can't wait to see how you are affixing these to the blanket! I have a niece who is 18 months, and I think this would be a great Christmas gift for her this year. Thank you so much for sharing!

Oh you've outdone yourself this time!
This is just fabulous… so many things you can do with them! Thanx Sarah, I posted this on my fb page and offered to help translate to spanish if they had any trouble I wish you great success… this will be a hit!

… by the way, loved your comments on being a mom and having time to crochet because you just make the time… I loved that, that's totally me! LOL
Thnx again, many blessings!

You are the best! I've been wanting to make an animal applique afghan and this will be perfect for my baby girl. She just turned one a few days after your baby and I'll admit it's been fun stalking your blog and watching your baby grown like mine has. You always manage to post the perfect pattern for what I've been wanting to make for her. Thanks for sharing your amazing talents!

I've just recently discovered your blog and having a great time catching up on your patterns. The blanket and applique animals looks great. I think I will try the applique animals first since I have so much leftover yarn. Thanks so much for the beautiful patterns you create.

I'm making these and the letters to go on a banner for my daughter's kindergarten teacher :) I've been trying to figure out a thank you gift for her for months!

Thank you so much for this wonderful share.
I came here expecting to get one great pattern (your giraffe) and found a whole collection of cute animal appliques. My nephew should have loads of fun playing with them!

I want you to thank for your time of this wonderful read!!! I definitely enjoy every little bit of it and I have you bookmarked to check out new stuff of your blog a must read blog!!

Thank you so much for the cute appliques. I’m making some of the penguin ones and stringing them together for a cute scarf for kids.

Where have I been that I have not seen these until now? They are precious! My mind is going 100 mph, thinking of all the ways I can use these in baby gifts, gifts for big brother/sister, etc. Fun, fun, fun!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much for making them available ~ you have put a LOT of work into these appliques.

Am anxiously waiting to have your patterns of the crochet animals so I can begin a blanket for my soon to be grandchild. Thanking you in advance!
