That was a really great tutorial. I've been trying to remember how I used to make flags. lol Now you reminded me. You do the same thing but then you cut out the other side so the fabric shows through.

Would you believe the only sewing machine I can get my hands on right now only does a straight stitch? As soon as I can do zig zag, I am all over this. Thanks so much!!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!    That is a great tutorial.

My appliques always look so messy.  Sad

that is an excellent tutorial. Unfortunately, I don't think my old machine is going to like it but I'm finally going to give it a go anyway.

I should have mentioned this: But make sure you clean your sewing machine (the bobin area especially) when you're doing lots of appliques. The loads of thread (specifically the cheap cotton kind) with leave lots of lint and such behind.. so just keep her clean or she'll turn mean on ya!

Rayon, Polyester and threads of that sort will leave less lint behind.  Smiley

You did an awesome job with this tute!!!  I've only done a couple, self taught as well, but now I know where I can improve.  What the heck is Wonder Under?  Do you think Walmart would carry it or would I have to go to Hancock or something?  The tying off part I'm kind of questionable on...do you thread the top thread in a need to pull it through to the other side to tie the two ends together?

Great tute...thank you, thank you, thank you!!

You really rock, seaofstars... I need one of those applique feet.   I loooove wonderunder, and I am definetly not using it to its full potential Smiley  Thank youuuuu!

What the heck is Wonder Under? 

Wonder Under is basically just double-sided fusible interfacing, so you can fuse two things together, just with your iron, its fun to play around with for sure.
