Crochet Cupid’s arch Applique

After the Cupid/angel granny square, today, it’s time to crochet a Cupid’s arch applique!

Cupid's Arch Granny Square - Raffamusa Designs

This Cupid’s arch embellishment is part of my Valentine’s Day collection, and it is sewn on a simple circle granny square crocheted in red yarn. But of course, you can use arch applique to decorate any project!

Think Valentine’s Day cards, T-shirts, denim jackets, etc.
