Applique, hand-embroidered Happy Hares cushion

haresAm thoroughly enjoying hand embroidery and made up a small, decorative cushion for a rocking chair.

Am not yet experienced or proficient enough to try bigger expanses of stitches but used Satin stitch, French Knots and Seed stitch here and there.

The appliqué scene is mounted on a medium-weight linen panel (with light-weight interfacing on the back).

The cloud, hills, hares and toadstools are all fabric shapes bonded with Bondaweb, fused to the fabric and stitched around the outlines.

It turned out well and am quite pleased with it.
