To celebrate summer and school being out here is a very simple little needle case to keep your Florabunda threads nice and tidy. As my family can tell you, “Nice and Tidy” is my middle name. They will also tell you that I have an evil twin called “ If you’re not tidy I’m not nice”. Anyway, digressions aside, this little case fits nicely in the pocket of my Appliqué Block taker for easy sewing on the go. I will have the free download up tomorrow so for now it’s just the how to.
Here we go.
When I am making a flower that has inner points like this I like to press these points first
After I have all the points pressed I CAREFULLY press the out petals down…see how close my fingers are to the iron…YIKES
When it’s done it will look like this on the back.
Then I pre-assemble my flower . I then place the appliqué on the right side of the background fabric and sew it down.Use whatever method of applique you enjoy for this part.I’m using hand appliqué here because it’s easier for me.
Here it is ready for the next step.
Be sure to check back tomorrow for the rest of the how to.
