HI Tracy here again with another tutorial, this time I show you 3 handy techniques to know.
I decided to do frames for my kids rooms with phrases to represent their names so here is Big Critters frame step by step.
You will need:
darning / embroidery foot
buttons, gems etc
hand needle & thread
double sided tape
Cut your backing fabric so will fit in frame I cut mine slightly bigger to wrap round when done so looks smooth.
I interfaced my material leaving a good size gap for turning later on. This keeps the fabric smooth for applique & embroidery otherwise can pucker up.
To start your applique cut your material in a square similar size to your design.
Back it with bondaweb a tiny bit smaller than the square this is to prevent it…
