Showers Snow brings May flowers..
I love Minnesota but I think we skipped over Spring/Summer
& went right back to Fall..
I'm inspired right now by pansy flowers..
First, I made a sketch..
a doodle really..
I do love to doodle..
I started with a piece of green fabric - roughly 7 1/2" x 10 1/2"
I used the same green for the back as I made the usual fabric/ batting sandwich..
Normally I would pin but because this is such a small project-
I started by making my vines for my flowers to sit on..
I used a lighter green thread to make the vines..
Next, I drew out the flowers & leaves...
I like odd numbers for things..
So, 5 flowers just made cents..
Then, I went on a hunt for purples..
Sew, I first, cut out all my applique pieces..
then, I ironed them onto the fabric I found..
and then cut them out..
Then, I started to place them..
& when I got them just to where I wanted them..
But, it seemed like something was missing..
I found this fabric & decided I'd use it for my binding..
I will say...
It's not very often I use the decorative stitches on
I used one to stitch my binding down..
But, it still seemed like something was missing from my garden..
Sew, I added buttons.. :)
I'm really happy with how it turned out..
do you like it??
hosting such a fun blog hop.. :)
Both of you are such inspirations..
