Vintage Machine Appliqué - Adding Detail with a Stencil
If you want to add detail and keep the result accurate, then make a stencil of the pattern and pin it to the back so that the bobbin thread shows on the right side. With so many lines of stitching there are bound to be tiny shreds of paper which can be difficult to remove. Because the stencil is on the back it does not matter so much about little shreds being left behind, because they will not show.
I have now nearly finished these pine cones - just the blanket stitch is left to do.
