Crochet motifs are a fun and easy way to add a handmade touch to a store-bought item; just applique the crocheted motif to the item, and voila - you've personalized it uniquely. You can also use motifs to decorate your crochet projects and other craft projects; they work well as embellishments for knitting projects, sewing projects, and many other types of needlework.
Sometimes you can also use them as the basis for making larger motifs -- or even larger crochet projects. The small flower motif pictured here is a perfect example; you can use the flower as the center of a hexagon design. Then you can use these hexagons (or other hexagons) grouped together to create larger projects like pillows and afghans.
