Hey all, i have a question. when making little felt embelisments for purses i was wondering if you all hand sew them or machine sew them.
i know that i try making them (especially putting two pieces of felt together) the machine jams and its a big unfun mess.


any tips would be helpful!

thanks

you can do either. machine stitching will be a little more durable usually.

I use that fabric fusing paper junk. Iron it onto the felt, cut out your shapes, then peel the paper off and iron onto your purse!

I did that for the letters on this bag (they're hand cut out of felt - too much detail for sewing!)
