My first attempt at needleturn applique. Pretty pleased with the result, and it does seem to get easier the more you do. It is actually very enjoyable and relaxing, but each time I get to a point I hyperventilate (probably due to the fact that I am holding my breath that the whole point doesn't fray out). Wonder why the stems and leaves are all "crinkly". It won't iron out, and I don't want to push it too much with the iron.
Could it be that I didn't cut these parts on the bias? I will try that next time.

All tips and hints on needleturn applique very much appreciated.
