Appliqué for a wall hanging

I have completed a little simple machine appliqué of 3 panels to make into a wall hanging for my niece. Each panel will be sewn on the backing as a pocket. The colour choice is pink and the theme fairies. The first one I did I used the colouring of my niece:

Sophie Fairy

Then I decided to change the hair and colouring to that of her Mummy:

 


Mummy Fairy

Then I decided that to complete the Trio I really needed the next generation up:


Grandma Fairy

The Grandma Fairy even has her own string of pearls!

Found that I got more even results by using tearaway stabiliser. Surprisingly never used this product before but very handy. Even handier are the appliqué scissors I got from Barnyarns and were used on the Carrickmacross sample shown in previous post. The scissors helped in the reverse appliqué technique used for the fairy wings.
