Hi! This is my first post. I just wanted to share some applique's I've been doing. I think they came out well. The tree was inspired by a friends talk of a tattoo and all the fall catalogues that have started arriving (with my favorite fetish, sweaters)!
The skirt is a vintage Simplicity A-line pattern from the seventies. For the applique, I iron double sided fusible on the cut out shapes. Then, I iron that fabric to the skirt and then go over it with my smallest zigzag stitch twice. It doesn't take too long. I think the tree took me an hour and a half. The circles by the tulips are shell buttons and the stems are ric rac.
