This is brilliant Reverse applique. Tiny scraps, strip pieced and laid beneath a design.
Placket Pocket ~tutorial~ I never perfected this relatively simple procedure - but I always loved the look of the well made placket pocket or button hole. I'm pinning to remind me this is something I want to master!!! (can they teach an old dog new tricks?? we'll see! ; )
This is a *Woven* Heart (Reverse Appliqué?) -- with hand-sewn stitching encasing & surrounding-- for a sweet finishing touch. The Heart is on the Flap of a Hand-Made 'Cosmetic Pouch'. Beautifully done, Great Ideas!
