Here are few photo's from a recent book cover/ applique workshop
held at Heaths Country Store
It was a chance to learn about the various
different kinds of applique and try them out.
Playing is the best way to learn.
Getting a feel for the fabric and the machine
and just seeing where it takes you.
Using bonderweb gives a very crisp edge and holds
everything in place with a warm iron.
You are then free to stitch in the detail.
An early start to a Christmas project.
From a book by Anni Downs
Angels singing carols.
A fun dwelling with blanket stitch on the window.
(I secretly want to live here!)
Time for a cup of tea and a gingham heart!
These petals are being arranged so they can be pinned
in place ready for some needle turning applique.
This book cover was made using lively African fabrics.
Part of the design was backed with bondaweb
and the shapes were cut out and arranged on a
complimentary fabric, stitched round and finished
off with a binding.
A dresden plate design was used on this book cover...
with a pocket on the back to hold some pens.
Such pretty Russian dolly fabric.
This turn and flip book cover was made using
Rachel Ashwell's new quilt fabric and embellished
with ribbons, buttons and ric-rac.
Here's hoping you all have a great weekend.
