Appliques

I decided to give appliques a try to expand my craft skills. It was a little difficult at first, but with practice, I'm sure it will get easier. Overall, I am pleased with the results.


This "C" is the first applique I made. Chess likes it, despite her facial expression. Don't look too closely, though; it is pretty rough around the edges.


Then I found a tutorial for this robe, and had to make it for Halle's birthday.
