Becoming visible

Just like Hush, my possum slowly became visible, from the tail up...






I'm delighted with how she turned out! The twice-stitched applique is hugely effective - I used about 8 threads all-up, with many, many thread changes as I went.


All done by machine - except the whiskers, which I hand stitched with a single strand of charcoal BottomLine.

I would never have thought to say a possum is "cute," but yours is! Adorable. I can't believe you made it look so real with only fabric and thread. You did a great job, Emma.
