I can’t believe I got my die-cutting machine to cut this huge gold applique correctly on the first try 😭 It’s a Katsucrunch miracle!

I got a Silhouette Cameo 3 to help me out with complicated cuts, and this machine and its god-forsaken software have been almost more trouble than it’s worth. Now that this applique is cut, I’m willing to consider forgiveness.

This is gold metallic pigskin backed with tricot interfacing. I wanted to match the seamless look of the reference, so I cut the top of the gold piece to wrap around the edges like a binding. Almost ready to stitch this all together.
