This inspiration for today’s craft came from the Classic Frame seen in the glasses pouch tutorial.  Unfortunately, the original website (Tangled Happy) we linked previously is no longer available. Hence, we decided to reproduce the pattern based on that design and hope you will find them useful. Apart from the classic, round and vintage glasses frame, we came up with two other very chic and fun designs. The rectangle and square crochet applique patterns are bound to style up your fashion items!

Speaking of applique patterns, did you know it was initially used to fix torn clothing with patches of fabrics like felt, leather, or cotton? Over time, sewers have found other ways to apply this technique. It has become a way to add style patchwork and quilting projects, showcasing a creative way to decorate your fashion piece or household items (pillows & quilts).

Let’s appreciate the details of this eyeglasses applique crochet pattern! I’m in love 😍. The red color sure made the entire piece pop. It’ll most definitely accentuate any fashion piece or bag you pin/hang it on! 

What Yarn To Use

The outcome of the eyeglasses applique crochet pattern depends on the weight of yarn you use. You may use any stashed yarn and its corresponding hook size or one hook size smaller. We used lightweight four-ply cotton yarn with a 3.5mm crochet hook, and the eyeglasses turned out to be 3″ wide for this free crochet pattern. If you decide to use a lighter yarn, you will end up with a smaller eyeglasses applique. On the other hand, if you choose to use a bulkier yarn, you will produce an eyeglass of a bigger size.

Stiffening, Yes Or No

Now that we’ve discussed what kind of yarn and hook you should use let’s talk about stiffening the eyeglasses applique. You may need to stiffen the Eyeglasses Applique if you are making it for doll accessories. How? Just spray them with iron starch during the blocking process; or dip it into diluted PVA glue like Mod Podge or homemade starch. By doing so, you can prevent the crochet piece from folding up in awkward ways and ruining the shape. If you’re new to this technique, try it on a sample before performing it on the entire crochet applique. 

For other attach-on applique purposes, you might or might not need to stiffen it depending on the structure of the applique. If the eyeglasses applique is able to hold up itself and you are happy with it, skip the stiffening by all means. Otherwise, lightly stiffen it with diluted stiffener mentioned above.

Let’s Crochet Them!

Just look at how the colors complement each other! You can create a theme with this free crochet pattern. Our advice is to go for either a bright & vibrant color palette or pastel colors. This way, you can get creative and crochet an entire set of eyeglasses as gifts for your friends or family. 

Happy crochet 😎
