Sara Arts - Crochet landscape in a frame
On Saturday I have found in a drawer the blue frame I bought two years ago. 
And I had the idea to realize a landscape with crochet appliqués!!!!!   
I started and worked at the patterns…. I love to spend hours to try 
and design with yarn and hook my own appliqués.

the bright blue waves

the small boat

the ancient lighthouse

Then I played with them on the canvas, as you can see now in the storyboard overlying.
Once sure about how to arrange the appliqués on the cotton fabric....

STEP 1: I fixed them first with simple stitches. I hand-knitted with white thread.
To make this step easier it's possible to iron the appliqués on the fabric
(read how to do it here...D.I.Y: How to sew an appliqué)

STEP 2: I switched on my sewing machine and cruised carefully with zig-zag stitches
in order to fix the work color by colour on the fabric
