This leopard head is part of a larger piece, but it turned out so well, I couldn't wait to share it. The faux fur material works as a perfect backdrop for the ears, snout and eyes. The original design stitched the whole head, but I thought it would be better to use a material with texture and remove the stitches corresponding to fur colors.

This Green selection sold in 35 minutes after placing it on etsy.
I have been giggling happily about that ever since.

This applique is of the traditional ilk. The butterfly was added to complete this custom item.

Please feel free to suggest your favorite color combination.

I'll do what I can.

Unique Letters

I figured out how to make applique letters exciting and unique. First I made 4"x4" ribbon mats:
Then I appliqued one of them to a little bag:

Happy 4th of July!
