Applique Pillow Practice


Here is a pillow I made for Trin with some scraps. I wanted to practice my applique so this is what I got. I'm not to happy with the flowers. I had two more on there put I took them off. Shane said it looked good...before I took the other two flowers off. I just wish the flowers looked a little better. I'm thinking they're just not the best kind for applique. If I woulda had green embroidery floss I woulda gave them some stems or something. But oh well, I needed some practice and Trin wanted a pillow. Win win situation!

i think it looks really cute. it's hard to make small appliques neat in my opinion. i think you did a great job and i like the hand embroidery. i do have some books, just remind me b4 the next time we get together.
