Tenía un cojín sin decorar, y con este pude hacer esta hermosa aplicación en esta técnica con la figura de una tierna muñeca. Aquí te muestro como lo hice.
What a pleasure to greet today to all this industrious community. I present this simple tutorial on how to make the patchwork technique. This is made with scraps of fabric and with it to make decorations or new garments. I did it sewing by hand. And I have to tell you that I enjoyed it very much.
I had an undecorated cushion, and with it I could make this beautiful application in this technique with the figure of a cute doll. Here I show you how I did it.
Retazos de telas

Ribbons and small flowers.
Pasos para la Elaboración:
En primer lugar busqué la aplicación, en mi caso usé esta linda muñeca.
Steps for the Elaboration:
First of all I looked for the applique, in my case I used this cute doll.
I transferred it individually and cut its pieces.
I transferred it gently with carbon paper to the chosen fabrics. I cut out each piece leaving seam allowance.
I started with the doll's apron by hand sewing with hidden stitching.
I basted the rest of the pieces to better place them in the lining. With a piece of green fabric I made a space where I would place the doll.
With a lot of patience, each part of the doll is added.
They should be sewn and checked for fit and secured with pins if necessary.
After I placed the hat I added a small bow to give better details.
Then I added other elements such as a bouquet of flowers, in this case I used brown ribbon, a green fabric for the leaves and some woven appliqués for the flowers.
I placed them very carefully with a red worsted ribbon and some yellow pebbles inside the flowers, to look like this.
Really, I was fascinated to make this application with this technique, I will surely try with other publications. I'm sure you can do it too.
This is what my cushion looks like in the living room.
