I love the look of applique on quilts and pillows and things but had no idea how to do it. After a bit of googling and a trip to Michaels for some Heat n' Bond (huh?) I finally scrounged up the courage to try it this morning. I also tried a blanket stitch (huh?) for the first time. I really do have no idea what I'm doing.
Even though I said I wasn't going to take any orders for dolls (right now)(work is starting to get end-of-the-year crazy) I just couldn't resist the request to make a secret doll for someone's secret pal. She has travelled across the country and is now safe and sound in her new home. Making the pigtails/puffs was a wee bit trickier than I had anticipated. Noted for next time. :)
