Peace hand-finishes her set.This design is from daily embroidery.I didn't do too well with my trimming, for the applique.I tried using my duck bills I got for christmas.They are very sharp and I was afraid of cutting too close,so I didn't trim close enough.My sister still might not like them,because of the color, but I had fun with it.-Toogie

I love the psychedelic fabric, and the designs coordinate perfectly. This is such a cute little set. It made me reminisce about my youth.

I imagine on fleece it's a bit harder to trim too cause of the fabric thickness, it looks fine though I think.

They are nice and colorful. With applique I either get too close and it pulls out or not close enough and lots of whiskers. Need to put one of those hot irons that melts away the whiskers on my wish list.

I know what you mean.Some designs let you leave a little and they cover it with ziz-zags before the satin, while others barely want you to leave any edge at all.

They look great. Love those colours. I find applique designs vary greatly for ease of trimming. Some have one or more straight stitching lines around the item when you've put the applique fabric on -so that you can trim up close to that before the satin stitch goes on. Way easier if you have designs like that to use. I'm always nervous about trimming close to satin stitches as well.

I trim before the satin,but some designs,even if you leave a little fabric on the edge, will cover it with zig-zags before the satin

What a fun set to have. You will get better at snipping with practice. Don't be too hard on yourself.
