Stitching continues on the green cloth project. I am loving the Kantha style stitching and the way it joins layers of fabric together. It changes the drape and feel of the cloth into a cohesive unit. The weight of it feels so nice in my hands as I work. I appliqued the bunny cutout with a simple satin stitch border. It reminds me of all the girl scout badges I had on my sash... many years ago!
The bit of floral applique was stitched down in the traditional manner, but then I went over it with embroidery floss to emphasize parts of it.
The Velvet heart also received some stitching treatment with a variegated pearl cotton in shades of green and blue.
All the trees have been appliqued down with a buttonhole stitch. Another rabbit added here with more to come. I decided to leave the lace as is and will add some embroidery elements on top of it. I'm imagining bluebirds flying through the treetops!
