After I sent her my post, I realized there were a few other tips or tricks that I wanted to include, so I will post them here -
- If in doubt, go slow. Slowly but surly helps especially as you go around the curves.
- Leave your needle down in the fabric as you do any turns.
- Be EXTRA careful when cutting away the excess Stabilizer you have on the back of your applique.
It got me in the mood to make another one for a friend who had a baby girl a few months ago. I have white onesies in a basket just waiting for embellishment and it's one of my favorite baby gifts to give. I made this sweet baby a cute elephant out of lime green fabric from Amy Butler's Love collection.
