Those are so cool! I love all the different balloons. And the prints on the fabrics add just the right texture. So pretty!

Sad Sad Sad

I forgot to use my brain last night and ruined a sweater vest that I was going to upcycle.... sad days.
Oh no! Sad That is too bad.

Is there a reason that some pillow forms have a zipper in them?  The only thing I can think of is to unstuff the form to squeeze it into a pillow cover that is going to be sewn shut...it seems like a lot of work to do it that way, but I was just curious...I usually buy the stuffing if it is sewn shut and a non-zippered form if it is going to be removeable...
Perhaps to re-stuff it if it gets flat? I don't know for sure...

All right, I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question, but after loads of searching online, on Pinterest, and on here, I need some help from you lovely people please! Smiley

What is the difference between using freezer paper for applique, or something like Heat n Bond for applique? It may be as simple as not understanding the basic use of each product.

I appreciate any help and clarification!!

Freezer paper peels off (90% of the time anyway. Sometimes it sticks  Angry ) It's useful for drawing/tracing shapes for appliqué then iron it onto the appliqué fabric (right or wrong side depending on if you want mirror image or not) and cut out. For stability you can leave the freezer paper on and straight stitch it onto the main fabric then peel and tear off the fp (don't zig-zag or satin stitch over the top. Nightmare.) Or take it off before hand.

Heat n Bond makes various products, including double sided fusible web. Some of these products adhere only when ironed on, some stick non-permanently until ironed, etc. Just read the labels Smiley One kind of Wonderunder is a double-sided fusible web like a heat n bond product that has exposed fusible web on one side and a paper backing on the other, keeping the web stable and covering the other side of fusible web. You can draw on the paper, iron over to fuse the 1st side of web to the appliqué fabric, then peel off to expose the other side of the web and iron onto the main fabric. The webbing stays adhered to whatever you ironed it to, it's not supposed to come off like freezer paper. It's very nice for appliqué because it doesn't move while you stitch it down and you don't have to use pins and potentially have bumps in the fabric. So helpful! If can make the fabric stiffer, though, which can be good or bad depending on what you're making Smiley

Almost finished with the cover for Calabaza -- it's been traveling to work with me so I can get a little bit done over breaks and lunch. Surprisingly efficient. Cheesy
Cool cool! Oh, what could it be? What could it be?!

I just now finished your cover! I have it propped up to take pictures of, but once I do that I don't have much of an excuse not to send it so I might wait a day or two. I've gotten over the shock of step 1 which had me going from room to room muttering "So many ___!" and now I'm actually going to miss the deceptive little thing.
