It was so fun! That's what everyone's been telling me, but I just couldn't seem to 'cut loose' and do the fused, raw-edge applique' thing. But for this sort of project, it's GREAT.
The lapel pin is just to give scale. It was fun... I can't say this one was fast though. I used Heat n Bond for the fusible, since I had it on hand, and it was a BEAR to satin stitch. The thread broke every half inch or inch. Took SUCH a long time to satin stitch the edge because the needle kept clogging with gum from the Heat n Bond. I won't use that fusible on the next PC, that's for sure.
So now that my feet are wet and I've re-aquainted myself with a couple of stitch settings on my machine that I haven't used in like a half a dozen years, I want to make more. A woman in my mini group -The Sew What's- is having her 71st birthday next week. What a great excuse for a BD PC!
Hmmm... the design wheels are turning.
