Experiments with Applique

So today was a day of a lot of challenges and victories as well as beginning new projects along the way.  Orchestrating the process into a cohesive collection has been challenging for me but have managed to finish all the hemming and topstitching as well as incorporating a few new pieces into the line up.

The most extraordinary part of my day was this morning while I was thumbing through Alison Smith’s “The Sewing Book”, I decided to try a decorative accent that I have done in a bunch of different medias including claymaking & tissue decoupage but never have attempted in fabric- appliqué!

I am excited for the outcome of this particular piece and was surprised at the amount of time it took ( it took a long time but not as long as I had expected it to! )

Stay tuned-more progress photos to follow, beautiful people!
