Boxing Gloves Applique From The Perfect Knot

Boxing Gloves Applique from The Perfect Knot

Recently I contributed to a project for The Join The Love Ministry where the theme of the blanket was "Fight like a Girl". Boxing gloves were requested as part of the theme & I couldn't find any, so I decided to make my own & share with all of you.

These little boxing gloves are dedicated in honor of this special young lady's fight, memory & to honor the life she lived. I pray it will be used as a symbol for all those in the fight to beat & cure Cancer & other diseases both childhood & adult.

Never give up & always Fight the Good Fight in hopes that someday there will be a cure!

Thank you for stopping by The Perfect Knot Crochet and More!

Enjoy!
