I have this incredible knack for trying new things when I do a baby gift that I always seem to think will be quick to complete.... uhhh... yeah not so much! I had just recently tried applique on a pillow I did for my aunt at Christmas but I didn't really read any directions I just winged it... Well I didn't really read any directions this time either BUT I did look at some pictures to see how it should look. I am not sure if there are different ways to do this but HOLY COW was this time consuming!!!! All of the fabric (with the exception of the lady bug) has finished edges. I cut, folded and ironed every little curve. My arm was killing me by the end!!
I chain stitched around the B and the leaf. And then did normal stitching around the ladybug and flower
