National Sewing Month

Day 14

Question: Do you like to applique, if so, by machine or hand? I machine faced the applique hearts with material first, then I hand-appliqued them to the fabric.

Country Hearts by Christen Brown

This simply designed wall hanging started with a pair of old jeans, and a few vintage floral prints. I used vintage rickrack and tatted lace that I found at a thrift store, and combined the trims with vintage buttons that I found on eBay. The embroidery is worked in perle cotton #8, and is embellished with rosettes with glass bead centers.

You can find this piece in The Embroidery Book by C&T Publishing.

Happy Stitching, ~Christen
