City Girl Sew Along, Block #4
This is what you will need:
(1) 8-1/2" x 8-1/2" square of background fabric (mine is Halle Rose C4184 by Riley Blake Designs)
(1) 8" x 8" square of hot pink fabric (mine is Riley Blenders C200 by Riley Blake Designs)
scraps of gray fabric for flower centers
HeatnBond Lite fusible web (or your favorite fusible web)
Thread for applique (I used Aurifil Cotton 40 wt this time)
basic sewing supplies
here for PDF templates) onto fusible web using a light box or a window (for more details on how I do this, click here for tutorial). Notice that I traced a petal template inside the large flower, and a circle inside the half flower. I do this because I don't need the fusible web covering a large surface, even though fabric with HeatnBond Lite applied to its back still has a very soft hand. It is a way to make better use of the HeatnBond Lite, particularly when I am running out of it.
this tutorial again.
Until then, have fun today!
