I am still here! After too much play at the computer with new designs, I finally chose one to work with.
I am making applique. I am not too happy. But it could be worse. Fortunately, the pattern is symmetrical and I can cut two and even four pieces at once.
At this point I would have liked a serious reason to give up! But I spent way too much time with the pattern so I felt that I have to go on.
What do you think I am doing here ? Yes, I am that crazy! I am gluing the applique pieces on the background fabric- on the floor. It looks like I am basting a quilt. And it is 9 PM.
I am lazy. For applique I don’t transfer the pattern to fabric. I tape the paper pattern on the window and on top of it I tape the background fabric. Then I glue the pieces on the background, on the window.
But where to find natural light at 9 PM, when I finished cutting the applique pieces?
I especially drawn the pattern with thick lines so it can show up more easily through the fabric. And because I work with white fabric, I noticed that I don’t need natural light and window to see the pattern through fabric. So I taped the paper pattern to the floor and on top of it I taped the background fabric.
