Tractor Applique

A client brought a pair of her son's green
corduroys and a white turtleneck.
She asked for a "boy" applique to match to pants.
This Ford tractor applique is one that I designed by taking
a picture of my husband's
1952 8N Ford and then made an applique.
Not too bad for my first attempt!!
