If you're like us, I'm sure you have a lot of quilting related tools and gadgets around the house. And maybe you've made all the quilt-related gifts you can...
Over the next few weeks we're going to be posting some ideas so that you can use those gadgets and make some gifts and holiday decorations.
But, before we get too far away from their original purpose, here is our latest Christmas applique project of the moment.
First we chose a few different sizes of circles- the 3", the 1 1/2" and the 1".
Here we used a General's Sketch and Wash Pencil, which does remove with water or an eraser, but since we're appliqueing the circles, it really doesn't matter if the lines don't come out as they'll all be covered up.
After tracing, we cut the circles out about 1/4" away from the line.
We used ours for a small wallhanging, but you can also do this on a shirt, blanket, tote bags, table runner...there are lots of ways to use applique in unique ways.
What are some interesting ways that you have used applique?
