The last couple of days has been a trial of appliqué. I started dewing the island appliqué with tiny zigzag (1.6mm) only to discover it was not really strong enough to pass my simulated washing machine and kids test.
While when sewing it the straight stitching does not look very neat, when you stop looking so closely the finish is quite good.
Looks like it was worth persevering with today
More installments soon.
