I made this pillow for HSG in the Decorate My House Swap. It was my first time making anything artsy with fabric and I love how it turned out! I put some fusible web on the yellow fabric, drew a tree design on the paper, cut it out, and fused it to the red fabric. The appliqué itself required very little sewing--I just embroidered the leaves with floss after fusing them to make them sturdier. I think I'll have to make one for myself!

(I also knitted the blanket on the couch.  Smiley)



Thanks for looking!

I just got odd looks for going "oh wow!" at the screen  Roll Eyes

That's awesome!  Can I steal the idea?!  I love the look of fabric art, but I'm near useless at sewing  Cheesy

I love this-
I think it would look really awesome with a silhouette look (black tree with a bright colored background)
