My Summer Cactus Cleo

Tuesday, April 4, 2017
Hi Everyone,

So I've made another Cleo! YEY! This time I wanted a really bright one, perfect for summer. I found this Bright Pink Cotton in my local Haberdashery and thought it was perfect.

Of course I couldn't just leave it plain pink - even though it's the best colour ever! So thought my cactus obsession could stretch to my wardrobe.
I'll be doing a Youtube video on my channel soon on the pattern and how much I love this Cleo variation. So keep a look out for that.

I sketched out some Cacti and chose my favourites. I then traced these onto Bondaweb and ironed them on to make them totally secure before adding my machine embroidery over the top. I'm so pleased with how they turned out!

Really hope you like it! Why don't you have a go at adding some fun applique to your summer clothes!

Happy Handmade!
