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)!

tulips:

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.

I made them myself. I took left over fabric and cut them into shapes.  Then I ironed on double sided fusible web to the back of the cut out shapes.  Then ironed THAT to the skirt.  I finished with a small, tight zig zag stitch around all the edges to add a finished look and to make sure the shapes stay on after a few washings and to keep the edges from unraveling.

I always have respect for people who have that patience to do appliques. Too much zig zag stitching for me.

Those skirts are so pretty! Especially the tulips. You make the appliques sound so simple .. where's the catch?  Smiley.

Thanks!  So far, the only catch I've found is that if you don't preshrink both your fabrics BEFORE you do the applique, then there is a lot of mumbling in the morning as you iron the appliques before work.  Smiley
