Last week we made a bag. Here is the tutorial
This week I am going to dip my toes into the world of applique. To use up those scraps and add something nice to this bag that I made for the sister.
1. I first decided on what scrap fabric I was going to use, and then decided on a cat. I just free hand cut the cat out. If there is a lot of interest I will make a pattern for the cat.
2. After cutting the cat out I went ahead and put a face on the kitty cat!
Here is the nose and mouth:
This is just an upside down felt heart, and a hand stitched mouth.
Here are the whiskers:
I free hand stitched the whiskers
And finally the eyes:
I went with a yellow and green theme here.
Here is the finished face:
3. Next, I cut out the piece of Heat and bond lite and ironed our cat down.
4. The last part is the trickiest. I had to pick a stitch and stitch the cat to the bag. I picked a loose zig zag.
Here is the finished product. What do you think?
