With Thanksgiving only a week away, it's time to start planning for the holidays. I designed a set of three Holiday/Winter/Christmas themed appliques. These appliques have so many uses! Add a string to the top and they are an ornament. Sew them onto a backpack, tote or your favorite winter sweater. Place in a frame and you have a unique piece of home decor. You could even add a rectangle back to turn them into a gift card holder! The possibilities are endless. 

I would love to see your unique ideas and creations; please tag me on Instagram lovable_loops to share your pictures with me.
