    Thanks. Yes, I did make the appliques. I did the drawing then transferred it onto a block, cut the block out, and printed with acrylic ink on pieces of soft cotton that I recycled from t shirts. I fused a lightweight interfacing on the back to keep the appliques sturdy while I sewed them on.

    I love the appliques. Did you make them yourself?

    Thanks! I think I will skip the pouch then as the canvas might be to thick as you suggested.

    Thanks, the idea was actually posted on here a while ago. FYI the canvas is just a little too thick to fit into the pouch so you need to make it bigger or skip it.

    Awesome! Great idea on the french seams! I was trying to figure out how I was going to do a single layer of canvas fabric and you solved it with the french seams. Why didn’t I think of that earlier? Thanks!
