my first applique

My friend, Tori, kept telling me that machine applique was as easy as pie. A recent project she did got me motivated to teach myself. I just needed a chunk of time to devote to the instruction.

I sat down yesterday for a couple of minutes and tried to do a fringed heart, but I quickly realized I should have waited to cut the fabric until after the embroidery was done, so I aborted that mission and thought I'd wait until today.

I didn't want to just make a mock-up that would not be usable, so I thought I'd put the applique on something that I could make into a pocket for a little girl's dress. Bingo Boingo and here it is.

The hardest thing of all was trying to decide what flavor I wanted the lollipop to be.
Also, attaching the bow makes it much cuter, don't you think?
