A springtime applique

It is finally spring. I am grateful for the warm sun and longer days.  I am enjoying the smell of the iris blooms and the sight of all the blossoms in the garden.

It is just about time to start making summer skirts and dresses.  I have an applique for you in two sizes.  You can embellish with ribbons, hand embroidery and fabric.  Use your imagination. I would love to see what you come up with.

Here is an example made by my friend Stephanie.  She is talented in hand embroidery in addition to being extremely creative.

Isn't it cute?

Here is my version. Try not to laugh. I wanted to show how it can look with ribbons.  For those like me who are not good at hand embroidery, here's a simple way to add a little color and flair.  

Click Here for the PDF that you can print and use as a pattern.  You can use this on whatever you wish, but please be respectful of the designer and don't share the graphics or the PDF.  If someone wants to use the design, please direct them to this site to download it. Thank you and enjoy.
