Having a ball(gown) with fusible web
The image to the right is my first fusible appliqué project. It is a dress from a block created by Cynthia Frenette for Quiltmaker's 100 Block series. I of course am a sucker for anything with a dress on it. I love Cynthia's version and her fabric choices.
Here's a picture of hers that appeared in the Quiltmaker magazine issue Volume 9.
Mine is made from scrap vintage fabric. I had never done fusible web appliqué before. I could envision making several of these appliqué dresses just for fun or it would make a cute quilt.
Here is another project I'm working on using fusible web. It's going to be a pincushion.
Most fusible web appliqué projects have the same steps. But always read the directions. Here is basically how I did my projects.
It's pretty simple.
Do you use applique in your projects? Do you do it all by hand or do you use products like the MistyFuse? I like the fusing part, it sure does cut down on time and makes it look absolutely perfect.
I'm that type of seamstress, just give me a short cut that works and I'm all over it. Let me know your experiences with fusible web. Do you use it in garments how do you like it?
