so, i've been looking at amy butler fabrics lately, but i'm not too fond of the prices. I was at the fab shop the other day and found this great deco fabric and its kind of like the amy butler prints, but this was only $1 a yard! woohoo!
the felt applique i'm still a little unsure of. im just not certain i like it. there's a big pocket on the front and it snaps close. i'm still deciding on the purse closure, either a snap or funky button... hmmm
for felt appliques, i cut them out, then glue (with a glue stick) them where I want them on the fabric. Then, I straight stitch them on with a short tight stitch. I do this when I have interfacing on the back of the fabric, and my machine is okay with this, some are not. I do not use wunder-under with felt.
if you're doing fabric appliques and need some help, let me know, i'm pretty good with those too.
