I felt a bit sorry for this little one. It didn’t quite get the post it deserved. So I’m back!
Must admit I was a teensy bit daunted by this design at first and at one point I thought I’d never get it done! There seemed to be a never ending process of steps – cutting then sewing, cutting then sewing, some more cutting then some more sewing and so on!!
Then there was a bit of a mix up with my fabric order so I was sat in the cold, dark, back room (oh poor me!) sewing this on Christmas Eve. I’m quite proud of myself for sticking with it. That was not how I pictured the night before Christmas and sewing against the clock is never clever!!
Buuuut in the end I got there and this is the result……
And a close up………
I’m sorry if I make it sound a bit of a drag, because in all honestly it really wasn’t. The whole process was actually quite relaxing and those appliqued petals are just the most satisfying thing to make…..EVER. I am already thinking of more ways to use this technique…..I just love the effect and texture you get once they’re attached.
