This is a tutorial for making super fast machine applique blocks without using Bondaweb or pins!!
You will need
- Fabric Scraps
- 12.5" square of background fabric
- Fabric glue
Cut out 6 leaves, a stem, flower and circle centre piece from your scraps.
Lay out the design, making sure you note the order the pieces are placed, For example the centre of the flower comes after the stem and flower.
Next take the design off and carefully put some glue on the wrong side of the stem. You don't need a lot, jut a few small dabs along the length of the stem.
Place this onto the background fabric and gently press down.
I like to relay all of the pieces back on and glue them carefully into place, this way I can see the overall design:
Again you only need a little glue. Once they are all glued into place, it is time to have a cuppa! The glue needs about 15 minutes to dry so it doesn't clog up your machine!
Next comes the fun bit! Sew the pieces into place!
You can use a free motion foot to do this, especially if there are lots of curves!
Once you have finished stand back and admire your wonderful work!
Please respect the work putting this tutorial together has taken. Do not be so rude as to steal the content without asking me first - I am a pretty friendly person. and I don't bite!
