Have you noticed how all the people have rosy cheeks? Many years ago I got a free sample of an expensive cosmetic blush. It was too dark, too glittery and too oily for me to use on my own face, but has worked out perfectly whenever an appliqued person needs some rosy cheeks.
As for that perfect button hole stitch, it is being done by my Bernina sewing machine. If I did it by hand, not only would it be irregular but I would still be on the first block.
