Appliques and hot glue
So, I have started my baby blanket and now the mother says she wants little strawberries attached to the blanket once it is finished. I know how to crochet the strawberries, but I am not so good at sewing them onto the finished blanket (I'm not good at attaching anything like this). Can I just get a hot glue gun and glue the strawberries onto the blanket? If not, can someone PLEASE explain to me how to attach this stuff?

Using a fabric glue like liquid stitch would be better. Hot glue peels off of fabric easily sometimes and it's usually really bulky. You would be best off sewing them on though.
you should use a fabric glue if you don't want to sew the starwberries on
Your best bet really would be to sew them on (which by the way, the strawberry blanket sounds adorable!)
This might help you a bit
Or if you're a video tutorial person like myself, I think this one does a good job
