I'm really happy with the way this reverse applique turned out. And the branch worked really well as well.

I'm not loving the yellow background colour - in fact it looks better in this picture because it is more grey than yellow. But I can't do anything about that now.

But a slight sewing mishap on one side that was completely undoable meant that I had to make the whole thing smaller. It was originally supposed to be a cushion cover but now it isn't cushion cover size (unless I tailor make an insert). I was thinking of turning it into a tote, but, hmmm. I'm not sure. Perhaps I will make an insert. See, I know writing about it would help!


  1. I'm intrigued! How do you do reverse appliqué? If looks terrific :)

  2. Yes, it is a great technique. You just sew layers of fabric together then cut them away from the top to reveal parts of the fabric underneath, if you can image that. It is fairly simple but has a great effect.
