SeaofStars has created a lovely tutorial.

But me, being a little bit OCD and trying out a new skill this afternoon (with the addition of a functioning camerra) have decided to post my version of the applique tutorial.  

For this, you need
  • Fabric
  • Iron
  • Supplies for Drafting
  • Thread/Notions/things to add on
  • Wonder-Under

First, start with your image. This is one of aschnebly's fabulous fawns.

I resized this image, so I gathered my tools

Built a 1 cm grid

And then enlarged it to a 2 cm2 grid

Iron your fabric really, really well.

Cut out your friend

And trace him on wonder-under.

Cut it out roughly

And iron it onto your fabric really well (you shouldn't be able to peel it up).

Then, cut around the traced lines (through the wonder under and fabric). It should look something like this

Peel the back off the wonder-under (the wax paper type stuff), and place everything going on the applique where you want it to be. Iron that again (it won't take as long as the initial heat-up).

And yay! You have an appliqued friend! Here he is posing on a piece of black fabric.

Once you have completed that, you can sew the fabric more firmly together. I'm working on sewing him to a laptop case, but because it's a swap item, you can't see it yet. I added buttons to his back.

Let me know how it goes, all, or if you have any questions.

Thanks for the tute - and the deer is so cute!

But I have never heard of wonder-under!  I really want some!!  But I am afraid it may be one of those awesome craft goods you can only get in the US?  If anyone knows whether you can get it in Australia, and if so where, I'd love to know!

I'm very into Britney Spears' early work, before she sold out, so mostly her, um, finger painting and macaroni art.
