I don’t know if you make your own appliqué patterns all the time, but I'm drawing little sketches and illustrations everywhere and onto everything. Often I throw them away when I’m done with them, and have to recreate them from quilts or even worse, old photos.
Inspired by the Napkin Challenge I thought I would show you the very simple technique I use to transfer my sketches and old appliquéd motifs into appliqué patterns. The technique works also well for mirror imaging patterns. I have used a napkin for this tutorial but be careful about copyrights though.
You’ll find the tutorial here.
I’ve been having a lot of company lately, from 7am to 8pm most days, and although I’m determined that this is OK it’s kind of difficult to be creative with this guy 1m from the house. They accidentally broke our water pipe and had to dig all the way to the wall.Oh, it’s a blast; thank goodness I have a iPod that can drown out some of the noise.-)
