A Nice Pear

I made this little pear last night.
I am planning to do similar sort of stitchery/applique thing with my students (but from a landscape image?) so I thought I needed a little practice first. I hadn't used that sticky Vliesofix stuff before so I had to try and nut that out ... by the way, I love it!!
I really enjoyed sewing this little pear; choosing the fabrics, sticking the pieces down, the fancy stitching - I'd really like to explore further and do more of this sort of thing! My head is running away, thinking of what I can do with this ... now where to I find more time to do all these things?!

How sweet! Pears have never been one of my fave fruits to eat, but yours looks delicious :)

ahh...yes...time. Never enough!

Hehe, I wasn't sure what I was going to see when I read your post title (hello Benny Hill :P) but this is very cute. It would make a gorgeous pocket detail. Do you have plans for it? And I'm another one who can definitely commiserate on the time front. There's just never enough is there!

Bec, I can empathise with your difficulty in blog post titles - what was I thinking?! :P

I too love your Benny Hill Pears. Now that you have discovered the wonders of Vliesofix, it will take on a life of its own. A word from the wise. Use baking paper on top of it when you're ironing it onto anything, because Murphy's Law says you will surely iron the sticky side onto your iron.
