Summer Fun Appliqué

I just have had a great time sewing out some of my collection of fun summertime appliqué designs.  Naturally drawn to color as I am this season allows me a no holds barred opportunity to use the best and brightest fabrics I have on hand.
Polka Dot Octopus in Aqua 

Used glow in the dark thread for this little angler fish.  Just received a testimonial from my grandson Dylan that it indeed glows in the dark!  Design is from Lynnie Pinnie.

Fun colors that will certain make your bag stand out in a crowd.  We all have our baggage - flag yours! Ribbons are 1 1/2 inche
