"Sprig of Leaves" Crochet Applique pattern (clickable):D
Working on a girl's custom boutique design for Etsy, and started with a crazy quilt theme bodice applied to a muslin foundation. I added some leaf sprig crocheted applique followed by embroidery. Loads of fun!
The design has been dubbed "By the Sea". :D
I will post images as the project progresses but I have already learned several things for the next time.
This embellishment (applique and embr) would look better on a simple solid fabric, next time I will stick with some lace, braid and or/ small amount of embr on the seams. :P
