Inspired by crafts and propaganda posters:



I started with tracing/drawings/print-outs of the craft items, burst and letters. I arranged the papers how I wanted then traced them into glad press and seal with a sharpie. Then I arranged all 3 fabrics in the order I wanted after much deliberation and consulting with my swap partner: orange, red, yellowish-tan. The press and seal went on top of the orange.



Next it was time to sew over the lines on the press and seal with a straight stitch, so all three fabrics were sewn together. After that I ripped and peeled the plastic off, cut out the design and sewed over the stitches with a zig-zag. Finally I squared it up and finished the edges by using the bottom layer to cover them up. And added loops to slip a dowel through for hanging.




Here's a great reverse appliqué tutorial right here on Craftster.


I like the look it makes on the back:

You captured the propaganda style really well!  Great Job!

Thanks for including a lose tutorial and in progress shots - I definitely want to try this technique!  It would work with so many different projects, and I never would have thought to do all the layers at once, so the shot of the back is really great! 

You rock!   \m/
