|Washed and dried once. They will get shaggier the more I wash them.|
|Close-up of free motion appliqued hearts (is 'free motion applique' a term?).|
|I love shaggy edges!!|
Yesterday I used interfacing for the first time ever in my life when I created the little bag with the button closure and now I have another 'first' to add to my list! I used Pellon fusible Wonder Under to attach the hearts before I sewed over them. A few weeks ago I won a gift certificate to spend at Blooming Felt and the fusible adhesive is one of the items I ordered. So glad I did as it was easy to use and quite useful too. I think I will use Wonder Under again on other projects...maybe on another test sample!!?
So, to recap:
Test sample 1 - folded flap button-closure bag
Test sample 2 - shaggy denim potholders
Stay tuned for test sample 3!! How many test samples will I make? I'm not too sure - I suppose I'll just keep sewing until I get to a project that I want to make four of!
Oh and don't forget that we have to put our clocks forward tonight... One less hour to sew!
