I originally designed this appliqué set for the Cuddly Cat Crochet Scoodie pattern, but the Paw Print Appliqué Set stands alone too! Add it to an animal lover’s tote bag, hat, scarf, Kindle Cozy, or to an animal bed or blanket – the possibilities are endless!

Make tiny thread appliques for a sweet touch, or giant super bulky paw prints for a blanket!

    Will use this pattern to “decorate” my ski instructor uniform because I teach a group called Polar Bears. Will also incorporate it for my fellow instructors’ end of year gifts. Thanks.

    I love this pattern and just had a great idea for it. I printed it out and read thru it. What do you mean by the taking commissions? Thanks.

      Hi Kristan! I used to take orders for finished items. I don’t anymore though, due to time constraints, so I’ve been trying to remove that part from older posts, but there are so many it’s taking a while to get through. You’re certainly welcome to sell your own finished items made from the pattern though! I talk about that on the All About Moogly page. :)

    I was wondering if there was a way to connect the toes…I’m wanting to put it on a baby headband…thx!

      Hm, you could whip stitch them together, but that might be kind of floppy/unstable, unless worked very tightly in thread. I’d crochet a circle in a contrasting color and sew the applique on that, and then affix the circle to the headband I think.

    I follow the pattern, but I have a question, when you say, in the second row of the pad …”[2dc] in the last 2 sts”, it means 2 dc in each one, or just one in each one?
    Because “[3dc] in the next st” is 3 in the same st, right?
    I’m so sorry but I’m confused. thanks a lot.

    I’m excited to see this appliqué on here. I’m going to make my daughter an ear warmer and probably just a headband and put this on them so we can support my nephews at their sporting events. They are the kougars :)
