Enter……Sammy the Starfish!

Here is my first attempt at hand stitched applique. It is incredibly time consuming. Looks like my “Under The Sea” project will be a long term one!


Have fun! Avis x

  11. Ha, have you seen finding Nemo? This one looks like the little chap in the tank.

    • No I haven’t seen it. I just tried to make him a little irregular which was difficult for me as I really wanted to make him from a perfect pentangle. The fabric was spotted in my stash by my OH. I was about to use my beloved solids πŸ˜‰ I’m off to Google Nemo and friends πŸ™‚
