Turn Those Raw Edges Under
September 1st, 2010
Today I’m going to share with you a great tutorial on an applique method called “Freezer Paper Machine Applique”. I’m not for sure if this is the “traditional” freezer paper method, rather it is the freezer paper method I use –bits and pieces coming from all sorts of different outlets.
Have you noticed the new pages on my blog? I’m now offering a “Quilt Patterns” page and a new “Free Tutorials” page. I’ll be posting tutorials on a regular basis and if you would like to stay informed about future tutorials like this one, please sign-up for my newsletter or RSS feed.
And guess what? Because I make things that add character, warmth, and charm to a space, without the extravagance that might otherwise make beautiful things inaccessible to those with children, I turn my raw edges under. Yes, that’s right, I turn them under. I find that the quality and the durability is MUCH greater when edges are turned under on applique pieces.
Note: The PDF document is packed full of helpful pictures. It really steps you through this process with ease.
Go on, give it a try, applique something!
