I made my purse over a year ago and took the pics today...so you can see a little wear on the edges of the applique since I left them raw instead of sewing up ALL THOSE EDGES. I think it wore well. I would LOVE to have a Silhouette to cut out the shapes. So my edges can be perfect!
I found the pattern for the purse here.
And here is my applique flower pattern. You'll have to forgive me. My printer won't scan for me today, so I had to take a picture of my picture. I made this over a year ago. It's a little wrinkled...a little imperfect...kinda like me! Rather than spend a million years making my inside curves perfect, I just cleaned them up when I cut the fabric. I also used a raw edge applque method, so I wanted it to look a little less than perfect anyway.
Just click on the picture to print. This should print out in a full sized 8.5" X 11" paper. or adjust the size to your liking.
To use the applique you can either print this out on your choice of applique medium... I use Heat N Bond... or you can trace it out over a window or lightbox. Here are the steps:
- Print out the image on heat n bond (or print and trace onto heat n bond)
- Iron image to desired fabric
- Cut out the individual shapes
- Assemply the flower back together either on your table or ironing board. Use the template and numbered shapes as a reference.
- Peal paper off back of shapes, one at a time, and position them on your fabric
- Iron them on to your fabric per manufactures direction.
Please remember that both patterns are available for free for personal use or as gifts and are not intended for use for personal sales. If you wish to use them for sale, please be sure to get explicit permission first. Thanks!
