I made this one a couple of years ago.  The 'applique' parts were just basted into place and I then embroidered over it.  There is no glue or iron-on stuff involved here.  I did not plan any of it in advance and just made it up as I went along.

Very pretty! It sort of reminds me of the Mola embroideries produced by the indians in South America. Smiley
