    Teeny Weeny applique pieces

    If you would have told me 10 years ago that I'd be doing this, I would have told you that you were higher than a bus load of Hippies! I had to use this to make, that!

    A button would not give the same effect as the teeny weeny, however I have used them before. I'm making a wall hanging for my mom, she has a birthday coming up pretty soon. Hopefully it will be all finished by tomorrow and I'll post it then.

    Gotta use what you can to accomplish your goal! Looking forward to seeing the finished project too!

    I applique' all the time and love it...have done some smaller than that. It's a challenge for sure! Adjust your stitch width... Don't get in a hurry, take your time....slow and steady. Enjoy and good Luck. Would like to see what you're working on... post a pic, please
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    Hugs,

    A quilters got to do, what a quilters got to do! For small circles, I like tiny yo yo's but they are not exactly easy either.
