Applique Hares

hares6

Just sharing a little work in progress here. This is the bottom panel for a small decorative cushion I’m making. The hares are  cut from a wool fabric and appliquéd onto creamy linen.

Using my template again (Bondaweb onto fabric, draw round template, cut out and iron on), I made a start on a panelled piece. It’s made up from oddments of cream linen because I didn’t have any big pieces left. If you pick out one thread and pull it out carefully (ie, don’t let it snap), you’ll get a straight line that you can cut along and keep the bits fairly well squared off. I did this with all four sides on each panel.

I dampened the joined panels and dripped watercolour paints to give some colour-washed areas.
