ok.. ready for part two...:O)
Close up again..;O))
Now it´s time to prepare the stitchery for the applique
I did try first with just to needle turn the stitchery to the pincushion
So I show some pictures of that first if some one wants to do that.
(Needle turn method)
I used my lightboard to center and to see
that the stitchery become the right size
Then I used the needleturn method to
stitch it to the top of pincushion..
but when finished I wanted to add some ric rac ...
so I ripped it up...;O)))
HAH...can´t do anything right from the beginning..LOL...
Picture below shows the stitchery added with needle turn..
see....it needs something more..:O)
So ...of course I forgot to take some pictures
of the next step...
Do like this:
Template B in cardboard (cereal package)
Template A and C in freezer paper
*Use Template A (freezerpaper) to center the stitchery
and cut around the outer line of the freezerpaper.
*Peel the freezer paper away and thread a needle
and make a running stitch in outer edge
and lay the cardboard template in the middle
and pull the thread to gather the stitches around the template.
Did you get a nice and round stitchery???
*Press it carefully to keep it´s form and take out the template...
*Start adding the ric rac with leaving a little tail in the beginning
and just tuck the ric rac in while sewing around the stitchery
when coming to the end...overlap the two ends nice and end the seam.
Now it should look like this..:O)
*Use template C (freezer paper)...
center it on the top of pincushion
and cut around the outer edge of template...
Hope you got all this..with my SWENGLISH!! :O)
Time to rest and some dinner for me...
See you all tomorrow with the last tutorial..:O))
