The pearl appliqué is attached to organza and I'm not sure what's the best way to sew it onto the fabric. Should I just sew tiny stitches along the edges or sew all over the patch? Any suggestions would be appreciated!
The appliqués is from the Scandinavian mail order company Stoff & Stil. They also have a mega store in Malmö that I visited this weekend (there is also one in Denmark). If you are traveling through Scandinavia I strongly recommend a visit to Stoff & Stil. The first time I was in their Malmö store a couple of years ago I thought it was decent, but nothing special. This time however I was really impressed with how it's turned out. The fabric selection is huge and the prices are often great. I would say the quality of their fabrics is average to above average. No high end designer fabrics, but a great stop for everything else.
I managed to score a really high quality ribbed 100% wool knit for 1/3 of the price I would pay in a regular fabric store. The notion section is also great if you are on a budget. The prices of YKK zippers for instance are among the lowest I've ever seen Sweden. Also I was thrilled to see loads of customers - ranging from middle aged men buying fake fur to young goths making party outfits. So no signs of a dwindling sewing interest there!
