Crochet Pattern: Tall Ice Cream Cone Applique My Latest #Crochet Writing

This is my latest blog post for Crochet Spot! Read the whole article on crochetspot.com
Ever since I attended a craft party for the charity Sole Hope, I have been thinking about crafting with denim in new ways. During the party, we cut up old jeans into pieces to make shoes for children who need them. Thinking of old jeans as a textile, I began imagining painted denim canvases and tote bags. And a denim tote bag would look great with a crochet applique like this one on it!
