What you will need:
- base fabric: either a linen or white cotton waffle material as I used. Cut your piece 50cm x 75cm
- some pretty floral contrasting fabrics
- you can add trims, ribbons
- embroidery floss
- erasable marking pen
Instead of using trims, I decided to make my own bias tape.
All edges will need to be finished off with a double hem but as I was adding bias tape I needed to only fold the ends over once.
Finish off both sides with a double hem
Your ends and sides should look like this
Cut your appliques pieces and place them into the fabric. I have used a Stitch n Tear stabilizer behind the appliques. You may wish to also use a walking foot.
Once appliqued, remove stabilizer backing.
Using an erasable marker, mark out where you would like your embroidery to go.
Use a large needle and double your thread.
