panda & corsage

I made a new appliqué today. I didn’t realize it, but it was the first panda bear walking pose. Her foot print is so cute, and I’m glad that she looks happy.

This is my first handmade camellia corsage! I learned how to make this one from Nona-sensei. The corsage is made from linen, and the yellow inside is leather. It is hard to sew leather by hand, but I’m satisfied by the result. The stem is made from thin wire, and wrapped with linen. The leaves were bias cut, and reinforced before attachment. I think that I need to create grown-up appliqué characters for the corsage.

Thank you for visiting!
