Reverse appliqué bag - a post from Doda

I made this bag using the Tea party dies. Instead of using the actual shapes the dies cut out for this, I used the shapes that were left behind and backed them with cotton fabric in a reverse appliqué technique. It was a lot of work hand stitching around each shape, but I was pleased with the result. Nice and cheery and fun for summer!

(Those little apple buttons were made from polymer clay by me some 25 odd years ago and have been in my stash waiting for a use ! Just shows you never know when you'll use something you've been keeping! )

have a lovely day!
