IHAN (I Have a Notion) 32 days of giveaways. I decided to try a fused appliqué. And just for grins I used my self portrait stamp, printed it out and used it as my pattern. I confess I am a bit "wompy eyed" in it. But hey, this is a first time, okay? Okay then!
After I cut and fused the outline onto the cream fabric, I put some multi color polyester embroidery thread in the machine, dropped the feed dogs and set the stitch to zig zag. I free motioned the outlines and some embellishments.
Here is a detail shot showing the stitching
Thanks to Kelly at IHAN and to the Attached Corporation for giving the prize. I might do some more wild fused appliqué one day.
Oh and thanks to Ricky Tims for the hand dyed fabric that made me so colorful!
PS.. this looks prettier in person. For some reason the photo looks kinda blah.
