    I joined the Sunbonnet Sue Swap back in January and committed to making 12 Sues for the month of March. I had never done applique before, so I was a little (read that A LOT) intimidated by the idea, but I love SBS so I wanted to do it. I looked at some U-Tube tutorials and some on here for applique and once I got into it I really enjoyed it. I made each one a little different, whether it was the colors or stitching or whatever. I've attached a couple. It was fun ... reminded me of playing with paper dolls.

    OMG :mrgreen: Your stitching is so good :mrgreen:

    I am embarrassed at how my stitching came out :oops: But time prevents me from redoing and since it is a calender I can't drop out :cry:

    Congrats on yours they are so nice :thumbup:

    Those are so cute, I want to do Sunbonnet Sue someday too. I know what you mean about the paper doll thing, my hubby
    was just laughing at me the other night as I am working on an owl quilt, he said I was obviously too much of a tomboy when I was growing up (I was) and have gone back in to my little girl paper doll phase.

    awww those are so sweet, I love the sun bonnet sues but I am a bit unsure of making them. Maybe after I get my feet wet in hand sewing I may try a couple to see :)
