I'm starting to lay out my next project - an applique tree. I have a bunch of the leaves ready to go, but I'm struggling with the tree itself. First one was too small. This one is too big. At least I have a ton of brown packing paper to cut up to see what I like. I decided the original color I wanted for the bark is too red. I love the fabric, but it's not going to work. So I'm down to a coffee brown or an orangy brown. (I have them both on the trunk.) I'm hoping there's enough of whichever I pick to be able to cut the trunk and branches all as one piece.
I see a lot more drawing and cutting in my future before I get to sew.
