a bit of applique

Would you believe these 2 shots are actually the same colured tee and taken in the same spot. Weird how the colours have come out so differently. I'll have to retake the pixie shot before i put it up on ozebaby.
Anyway.... having been playing around with a bit of applique as you may have read/seen from previous posts. It's lots of fun. i lvoe playing around with material. I really love this green paisley and have used it on quite a few things. I like how i can frame certain bits of the paisley.
The pixie is Gina the fabric pixie. She reminds me a lot of one of my sister's when she was a little girl. She had long plaits although i think she also had a fringe. She is also a fabric lover so when i noticed the similarity and had appliqued the fabric i had to give her a part of her name.
Hoot the owl is for a friend. I love her and so does tully. Tully was very excited when she saw i was doing an owl but knew it wasn't her owl as i have the pic of her owl up on my noticeboard. I really like hoot and will be doing some more like this for book week. I have some great fabric with letters on it which will be perfect.
Will be putting Gina up on ozebaby at some stage along with a little buzzy bee i've just about finished and hopefully another little bubba pixie. My part of the next pikki tint collaboration is finished and winging it's way to tikki. Can't wait to see what she comes up with.
