Shadow Applique

Well - I have always fancied a go at shadow applique and just never got round to trying it. Been having a bit of a creative block so thought I would try something new, so here are my efforts.



Quite pleased with the outcome, but need to find away to make the stitching at the end look nice and neat - any thoughts??

  1. Fiona, I think your shadow work stitching looks good. I love this technique. You can see a closeup on how I finished my edges here:

    I just machine stitched then cut away, VERY carefully. Some little stray 'hairs' remain but they don't bother me. I'm sure there's a 'right' way of doing it but this was my way.
