Instead of embroidering the snake's tongue and eye, I inked them in using a Pigma pen.
I knew I didn't want to use star buttons for the next few flags as was suggested. Even bought a package of stick-on felt stars at Michaels but they were too big . . .
Then I remembered I had these star fabrics. They were perfect. I cut out the blue stars and fused them to the flag below and then did the same with the smaller stars (using the reverse side as they were a bit "whiter") and fused them to the next two.
Oops, one star shifted a bit. Can you tell which one?
I'm all prepared to start November's assignment. Have my fabrics and just traced the pieces for the eagle applique onto freezer paper.
