|Trace design on back of background as usual.|
|Here is a small piece of fabric that will be the three flowers in the design.|
|Pin mark the seam allowance around the first flower.|
|This is what the pin marking looks like from the front of the background.|
Use the pin marks on the front to guide placement of the applique fabric. Get the edge of the fabric as close as you can to the pin marks.
|Pin applique fabric in place. Baste and trim as usual.|
|Pin mark the next flower.|
Repeat the process of using the pin marks on the front to guide placement of the applique fabric. Again, get the fabric edge as close as possible to the pin marks.
Sometimes you can save fabric by pinning multiple shapes at the same time. Just make sure there is room for a seam allowance between the shapes. Baste and trim as usual.
Here is Jim holding up a Superman pillowcase I made for him as a thank you for being my Superman and grilling for my Round Robin group this past weekend.
|Good boy Ricky! You nabbed your first fabric thief!|
|Please no cameras, I have a secret identity to protect!|
