Crochet the letters to form the word “KISS” applique and sew them on your most romantic projects for St. Valentine’s Day!

Crochet KISS Applique Granny Square - Raffamusa Designs

I used my KISS appliques to decorate a couple of squares of the Valentine’s Day collection, so I sewed the letters to a simple circle granny square. But of course, you can use these KISS letters to decorate any project for your loved ones!
