Applique Christmas Ornament

Each year for our Applique Retreat, we have a "challenge". This year, it was Christmas Ornaments which have some element of applique. I was in A.C. Moore and found a piece of cut wood in the shape of a butterfly and thought that would make a nice design. Using wool for the background, I then applied Ultrasuede for the design, since it was easier to cut. I made two of these, so that the back is identical to the front. Then I added 4 dimensional flowers to each side, and topped them off with some beads. 

This was supposed to be an ornament exchange, but everyone spent so much time making each ornament, the ladies decided to keep their own.

What a great idea. I need to look at wood shapes with new eyes.

Margaret, the butterfly is beautiful, and my favorite colors are red and yellow as the flag of my country. All fixtures are fantastic, I hope someday to do something similar. Mandu memories of Baldomero and Theodora. A hug, Happy week.
