Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich Applique "You're the peanut butter to my jelly"

By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
Ideas on how to use these appliques...
*These would be great to apply to any project.
*You can add them to kitchen towels,
*turn them into a keychain or fridge magnet.
*You can also make several and make a garland.
*Attach a ribbon to make them into bookmarks.
*Add them to the front of a homemade card.

approx. 2"height x 1.75"length
...but can vary based on yarn and hook size

*Crochet hook size: 2.75mm (C) & 3.25mm (D)
*Worsted weight yarn: Beige White (10yds), Light Brown (3yds)
*Felt: Light Brown, Purple & Black
*Tapestry Needle
*Matching Thread
*Hot Glue (optional)
*Makeup Blush & Q-tip (optional)

 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
 Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
 There's no need to sl st and/or ch when going to the next round unless stated to do so.
 Always do the 1st stitch where you slip stitch from the previous round.
 The chain, in the beginning, does NOT count as one stitch unless stated otherwise.
 You slip stitch on the first sc, not on top of the chain 1.

Invisible join - this VIDEO explains how to do this technique.

BREAD SLICES starting with white; 3.25mm
     Follow the pattern for my 'Toasted Bread Slice Applique' and make 2 bread slices. Once you have made them follow the assemble process below to turn them into the peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     PEANUT BUTTER and JELLY SPREAD...using a light brown and purple (color of choice for your jelly) felt, make your spread in any shape and form. Don't glue it in place just yet.
     EYES...using black felt make 4 tiny circles and place them in the position you like best.
     MOUTH...using black embroidery floss or thread, embroider the mouth. Make it however you like, the possibilities are endless.
     CHEEKS...you can use pink felt and make tiny circles or you can use makeup blush and apply some on each side of the eyes using a q-tip.
