It's the month of LOVE so of course I'm thinking Valentines Day Projects. This one I am calling Crayon Applique! For real!
I love doing seasonal projects and I attended a mini workshop at my Elmira Needle Sisters Group last week and one of our members demo'd how to use crayons on fabric. I had done this years ago as a demo and it was a pleasant reminder of a very nice technique, so I thought I would share it with my followers.
My image is below:
3) Once your fabric has cooled, with a Frixion pen (this pen disappears with heat and is wonderful for quilting/sewing projects), trace the image onto light coloured fabric, you can use a light box if you wish. I traced only the areas that were going to receive the crayon first.
6) You may also wish to stabilize your fabric at this point prior to tracing any more items. I stabilized my image and satin stitched around my letters and free motion stitched my branches and birdies
