A new technique


I recently learned a new technique called embroidered applique.
It is a fabulous technique that you can do on your embroidery machine using little pieces of fabric. I purchased a wonderful pattern from JuJu designs and she has a wonderful tutorial on this technique.
I am in heaven!
Of course I had to make a towel :D

Oh. I must find out more about this, it sounds just up my street. The towel is lovely.

Boo-hoo....since I don't have an embroidery machine, I guess I'm out-of-the-loop on this technique. :( I love the work you have done with it, though.

I had Michele at Calico Daisy do teacups and a teapot for my Time for Tea Swap. I made a bag. I'd never heard of embroidery applique. Since I don't have an embroidery machine I'll just have to admire the work of others. :o)

Oh that is so cute. I'm curious, do you use your towels you make. I don't think I would be able to. They are just too cute to ruin.
