I spent quite some time fiddling the letters on Jacobs to place them amongst the Cath Kidston cowboy fabric.
I always use a satin stitch to edge this applique as it makes it a bit more substantial for children.
And I just love the mother of pearl buttons on the back. I have a long held love of mother of pearl it reminds me of crafting when I was little and of course of the coast.
Lots going on here at the moment, teenager doing internal exams (mocks to us oldies), rehearsals for a big summer show, house sale going through, plans for this house being prepared, allotment in full swing, and sewing for a very exciting and lovely event (of which I shall tell you more another day).
