New Moves

In the midst of all this indoor time I have been learning some new moves on my machine. For the longest time I have wanted to learn how to applique, but just didn't know where to begin.
A friend of mine (Hi Kim!) asked if I could applique and I had to tell her that I had been meaning to learn, but hadn't yet. My head hung a bit lower, so I decided to do something get on it.
After Googling it and finding a couple of neat sites and some "How-to's", I decided I was ready to give it a shot.

First I made this.

It was cute but crooked. I needed practice!
So then I made this.

After that I made this.

And then...

And...


At this point I think my boys are going to have applique shirts to wear 3 a day, but they are so cute, I just can't help myself.






After I get some good examples made, I will get them on my Etsy site, but for now, I am just playing.

Today I made this. Anyone know someone I can send this to for their birthday next month?


If you NEED one, let me know, and I'll hook you up.
