Appliqué Picture For A Whisky Lover

Now that this has been gifted I can finally share this appliqué Jura whisky picture that I put together.

I couldn’t believe my luck when I looked in my small bits of fabric box and I found the perfect fabric colours for making the bottle and a thistle fabric which was just what I was wanting for the background. I don’t normally have such good luck finding fabrics I want to use in the fabrics I have and normally end up having to buy more!

I drew a rough sketch of the bottle and what detail I was wanting to include from the bottle and used that sketch to cut out the different fabrics and then hand sewed the writing details onto them.

The bottle fabrics are from The Craft Cotton Company and the thistle backing fabric is by Lewis and Irene Fabrics (A Walk in the Glen).

Highland Cow Applique Embroidery Hoop Picture – Perfect For Using Up Fabric Scraps

Now this make has been gifted I can now share it without spoiling any surprises! I wasn’t too sure how this make would turn out as I started with a very rough sketch of a highland cow sat on some fields and from that free-hand cut out different shapes of fabric and sewed them onto a fabric background to build up the picture.  Half way through I was starting to doubt whether I had completely messed it up but I stuck with it and am really glad I did.

Fabrics are all from The Craft Cotton Company.

Now I have success with this one its time to have a go at a few others I have in mind!.
