It’s Tomorrow, Today

Update: 10:55am

Yes, I am using fusible throughout. That way I can simply iron into place. I plan to satin or buttonhole stitch afterwards.

I am still considering my options - because fusible is too expensive to use as freely as I want. I have so many plans. I'm thinking about glues like liquid stitch? But since it's not readily available where I am, I am thinking this through.

With fusible, even with the added cost, I still feel the advantages outweigh the cost. I am really still experimenting and deciding as I go. I will keep you posted. Working with this easy cutter is still new to me.

So if you have any thoughts, please share them, I'd love to know.

Oops, I forgot to post my GOBaby progress. Where was I? Oh yes, here we are
As I mentioned in my previous post, going straight into arrangement without cutting is a lot of fun and I’ve been playing around with brights. I have some projects – a bit different to what I normally do, that I’ve been meaning to make for some time. But you know how it is. With so many WIPs on the go, I never find the time. And to be frank, I haven’t been motivated to organise and cut…for the sake of experimenting.
Until now...

Still going ... will update again
tomorrow for WOW

  3. Oh my! Lovely. Now, are you cutting fabric that has already been added to fusible? OR, are you planning to do needle turn to all of these?? I'm thinking I need all of these shapes now.. I'm sure this will all be adding up here.. :)

  4. I love the fabrics! I, too, would like to know if you will needle turn or satin stitch or raw edge?

  5. Oh my goodness that is so cute!! Can't wait to see more. Love the bright colors. I've used regular washable school glue. Just need to get a bottle with a thinner tip and it works wonderfully. It's a bit softer in the end than fusible, but does take a bit more time. I always use the school glue when doing 1/4 bias tape.

  12. I use spray starch. Just spritz some into the cover and use a small brush to apply it to the applique

  14. Hello! Washable children's glue sticks will hold these down while you applique in place with your machine. Just a thought! Becky at bngwingo@yahoo.com Love your work!

  15. Hey! Love your work. You can use a children's washable glue stick. It is a good fixative and will be washed out later. Beck at bngwingo@yahoo.com
