Have you ever feel that hand tracing a decent amount of applique patterns to fusible web such as Steam-A-Seam or Heat’n Bond is something you want to skip? Multiply the time with the amount of appliques you need to trace, you are going to yell at them and pulling your hair. Even for those appliques that are simple, repeating it over and over again is boring and monotonous. Here is the tutorial to show you how to get them done faster with just a few simple steps.
I am sewing a full size super single blanket, “The Secret Garden“, that was specially designed for my daughter. The 62″ x 88” blanket has lots of appliques, if I wasn’t miscounted, there are a total of 360 pieces of them (the photo shown below is only part of the applique I did). I was slapping my forehead and feel a little regret to be so enthusiastic on the design when I realized how time consuming it was to trace every single applique by hand. Well, project must go on and I need to think of a way to make things go faster before I surrender on it. Through out the process, I’ve come out this method that make things a lot easier and faster for me.
