Some beautiful examples of Applique

Applique is very much an obsession of mine at the moment. I first started being interested in it sometime last year, but since doing some of it recently at my internship, I'm super inspired all over again. So I decided to compile a list of inspiration for the day! And here it is...

I'm a complete sucker for an applique bird. I really like these because they are so different from your average applique birds.

This is a really great tutorial for turning photos into applique. It's definitely worth a look.

Just for a few moments, I'm going to drag you down kitty cat lane....

... to some catplique :D

This wouldn't be a crafty fox post without a fox...

I thought I'd leave my favorite for last. This just has so much love and effort put into it...

Lace, lace, LACE!

Wow, I can't believe that it has been over a month since I last posted. I have been so busy making that I keep forgetting to report back and keep you guys updated :) Well, I'm doing a lot of sewing with lace at the moment, so I'm focusing on lace tutorials etc. I've also started making my own underwear, which I'll post a tutorial for as soon as I'm done!

But for now, here are some AMAZING lace tutorials to keep you occupied. My favorite is the lace shorts.. I'm definitely going to try that out as it looks so easy!

Lace shoes are so stylish and elegant... And yet when you buy them from the shops they end up being just so expensive. So why not make them yourself?

Quick update

Wow, so it's been a long while.

I apologise for the lack of tutorials and updates, things have been so busy that I haven't really had time to do anything creative or fun for a while. I have a few unfinished projects going on, but sadly there's nothing interesting!

I promise to return soon :P Peace out, fellow crafers
