i'm a huge noob at sewing, the only things i've made successfully are little drawstring bags (like this one, above) and a small stuffed rabbit called colin. this was my first attempt at appliqué and i'm quite pleased with it! i thought the wash line was appropriate for a peg bag.
i really enjoyed appliqué-ing, it's neat how easy it is to customize stuff to make it appropriate/personal. i'm going to try make a tea cosy next.
