I realized that not everyone is necessarily familiar with some of the sewing techniques I use. I want to give you a place to check out some of them.
Fringed applique - this gives the flower's petals a little something extra.
Variegated thread - allows for shading in a large design, or just a little fun variety on a border stitch.
Fun Foam - makes the edge of your design pop up from the fabric.
Applique - It's not just an outline, it's a fun fabric on top of the original item. It adds pattern to your project.
Photo Printing - this allows you to add a personal photo to your special item. It works perfectly to help your child learn about their far-away relatives while playing with a toy.
