I stopped this morning before work and bought some crochet yarn to couch around my felt applique. The only color that would work was dark green. Gold would have been nice but the store didn’t have any.
I couched the yarn down with matching embroidery floss, using one strand.
I am almost 3/4 done. I think it would look really nice if I couched a thin gold cord next to the green but I’m not sure I’ll do that. It might be finished with just the green.
