If you have only two hours for sewing, this free heart pattern is for you!
A few fabric squares, some fusible web and some heavyweight interfacing (scraps work, too). This is an older design, but this time I made it in another technique.
That quick technique that uses a knife! I honestly wanted to sew these with the traditional fusible applique technique. But the knife does its job faster than scissors so I chose the knife!
Two coasters (+pictures for the pattern!) in less than two hours.
I secured the applique design with a spiral stitching; this is the fastest and easiest stitching you can sew on a piece; start the spiral in the center, then keep rotating the piece under the needle as you sew. Use short stitches, you want nice curves.
