Practising with Applique

Post by KimChick » Wed Apr 15, 2020 11:42 am

Just finished this bag a couple of days ago using only materials at hand, except the fabric for the letters and the green thread. Not only am I practising applique skills, but also with making a pattern with the size and shape I want, and recording the method I used to make it. Plus, for the green outline stitching of the letters, the thread is a shiny viscose and very thin. It took a couple of machine adjustments to get the tension right so it would stop breaking, even after a sample run. So it's a bit sloppy. Over time, I may change the straps from the cotton twill tape to something more robust because it's a bit soft.

In memory of our first rooster, I wrote and published a Kindle eBook on Amazon, "Humphrey, the Rooster: A true story". Humphrey is my current avatar.
