Using a little doggie design from the flannel used some paper to make my own templates for the main parts of the design. Then cut out of fabrics at hand. Using some way of attaching or fusing the application on then stitch around edge. Adding next feet and face sections, stitching in place as well. Other little details added with machine embroidery, I did free motion embroidery on some of the tiny detail I wanted. Decided on the doggie bone and bowl as extras done in same way.
