Over the Easter weekend I managed to get the applique prepared for "My Scissor Keeper" and my technique for those pesky hexies is definitely improving! I've used the applique paper and glue stick technique along with those apliquick tools, and the row of hexagons was hand stitched together using the same Aurifil 80wt thread that I use for appliqueing the shapes onto the background fabric...
...this shows the front of the scissor keeper with it's cute button jar and sewing machine. Next step is to applique and embroider the lining, which I've already prepared ready for meeting up at Busybee Stitching sewing group later this evening.
