I have wanted to do something with it since I got the magazine because it's adorable, cheerful, springlike and colourful and there is lots of quilting space.
I also wanted to share with you my method for appliqués to avoid my directional issues with reversing designs for fusible appliqué...... and I use freezer paper. I am making a personal project with the birds but you could use any appliqué design.
Your main tools will be Reynolds white Freezer Paper, a sharpie marker, fabric, parchment paper, an iron and Fusible Web
1) Trace your appliqué design using a piece of freezer paper (on the dull/matte side) and a permanent marker, the way it is shown facing you. Cut it out roughly
6) Satin stitch, blanket stitch or appliqué stitch as desired to a background fabric.
About Parchment Paper:
-You may wish to lay a clean piece of parchment paper between your iron and your appliqué surface to protect your iron
-You can build your appliqués on parchment paper
-Parchment paper is a great tool in place of a silicone/lead pressing sheet (and it's a lot cheaper!) and fusible web will not stick to it and it will protect your iron as it has a non stick silicone treated finish... not just for cookies anymore!
Happy Tuesday, I hope your week is going well! 🌷
