Scrap Stash Musings: Foray into Applique


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?
