So...I got the old sewing machine out and bought some cute fabric to do some sewing. I learned to sew in India and was able to sew some totebags and even a dress for my sweet little friend Lyla Joy. Now that I am home and have the accessibility to some amazing and helpful sewing products, I decided to expand my repertoire and try applique. I used this tutorial from Sew,Mama, Sew!. Here are some pics of my first adventure in applique!
I used Steam-A-Seam2 fusible webbing because it is two-sided and makes doing letters easier.
It's for Halloween!
Ironing the webbing on
Here is the finished product. The seams on the zig-zag are a bit janky, but keep in mind that this was my first applique and pretty much my first time sewing something that wasn't a straight line. I think I did pretty good for my first try!
Don't worry, Kacie. I made Lyla Joy one (or a few)!
