Bumble bugs!

Ok, so many things wrong with this! If I’d stuck to one heart I might have got away with it, but I thought I’d use up all that wasted fabric! My inexperience at appliqué shines through (I had intended to bead around the edges but hadn’t realised I’d need to, to hide the stitches!).

Working on velvet, I didn’t pay enough attention to the way the hearts moved on the nap, the slightly thicker, candlewicky stripe on the heart affected the switching coming back down, and one petal is too far out…..

Back to that drawing board. Oh, and when you see a perfect bit of appliqué (usually sensibly done on linen or cotton), silently applaud the skill involved!
