Add dressed-up effects to your stitching using simple appliqué techniques
We thought we’d try something fun this month by adding little appliqué clothes to dress up your cross stitch. It’s a brilliant way to use up fabric scraps, as well as being super -quick too! We have three different ideas for you to try, our first is this mini washing line with its cute cross stitch clothes and pretty polka dot appliqué dress. Next, we’ve added a little, gathered appliqué skirt to a little stitched figure. And our final design is this sweet little sausage dog, complete with mini floral coat!
