I know some people do their appliquees on felt and was wondering why and how. I'd also love to do some dangly appliquees from a dress and I'm thinking this is how?

Thanks

Felt is a touchy topic in the custom world. When I use felt I use it to test a design I have never done or for my boy with sensory issues. Also if it is going to make an appliqué pop. The secret to felt is to make sure it is trimmed properly.

Pretty good, I have between 8-10 weeks left if not less. I am doing my 3 hour glucose test right now. Yesterday I was having a rough day but today is much better.

I agree with cogero - it is definitely a touchy topic...it seems to be one of those looks that people either really like or really dislike.

I did these 2 shirts last week partially because I've never done one that way and wanted to experiment. I really liked the idea that the wrong side of the sewing wouldn't be directly against their skin when the shirts were worn.




I did like the way they turned out but it was white felt on a white shirt so there wasn't the 'pop' affect that cogero mentioned.

As for your thought of dangly appliques, I would do them in the hoop like clippies (with felt) and insert add ribbon in the appropriate spot (presumably between the fabric front side and the felt back side).

I have seen some of the launches where the appliqués are on felt and I wondered about that too. I sort of understand after trying to put an appliqué on a skirt panel of a grace dress this week and it wasnt as taut as it needed to be and by the time it was satin stitching it was all misaligned.
I did out Minnie safari on felt to cover up a botched one of the same when I made my own safari shirt last year. I ruined 2 shirts making it and I was able to salvage the one. It's super thick though with two appliqués and the felt so I would never sell it like that!

I see that you got some answers about your felt question. I am one of those people who is not crazy about doing appliques on felt. I don't feel like i ever get them trimmed nicely enough.

Sorry that you had a rough day yesterday. I hope that you are feeling better now. I didn't realize that you were due in just a couple of months. That's so exciting! Have you sewn anything for the baby yet?

Well, I have not done too much sewing in the past few weeks. DH wasn't feeling good for about a week and then we had company for a week so things were a little bit crazy. Add in spring break and that completely took away my sewing time.

I did make some of those cooling neck wraps for our trip to Disney in June. Thanks to Jen for suggesting them!
Here are the ones I made for my in-laws. I know they wouldn't wear Disney ones. I made them with snowmen on them just to be funny.


Then here are the ones I made for my family:

The kids are fighting over who gets the 7 Dwarfs one. If I had know that they would both want those, I would have made 2 of them. I might still go back and make another one since they were a cinch to make. I think these would be a perfect addition to our list of things we regularly make for Big Gives. Plus even a new seamstress could make them as they are really just a long tube that has been divided and filled with the beads.

Then our FB group had another launch on Tuesday night. Here are pictures of the things I had in the launch:






I was thrilled that 2 out of my 3 items sold. The princess dress, which I thought would do well, was the one that didn't get sold. Now I need to figure out what to do with it. LOL!

I am doing a safari Minnie shirt, I wanted to do a ribbon bow for it. I was wondering what to do for te edges of the ribbon, I have heard I née to heat seal them, how should I do that?

Also bac to te question of te felt what about te "dangles"as I called them I am thinking of the Ollie girls dresses tha I've seen recently with appliquees that dangle from ribbon from the waistband. If I did a regular one sided appliquee what would I do to e back so it has a clean finish? I could glue felt to he back or plain material and then cut around it for a cleaner r finish or if it is a symmetrical design, do 2 and glue them together. If it isn't a symmetrical design can. Invert the design?

Thanks
Erin

I glanced through the launch, but I didn't see the princess one, so maybe not enough people saw it. The Bugs Life one is super cute!!

I haven't done any embroidery on felt, but I do make a lot of 3-D things so I might have an idea on how to cover the back stitching. stitch your design, and then sew another piece of fabric to the front, "good side" to "good side", sewing along the perimeter of the design, leaving an inch opening. Trim a scant 1/4 inch (1 cm?) from your sewing line and turn it right side out through the opening and slip stitch the opening. I'm just throwing this out there, and now I've presented it, I'm going to have to try it to see how badly it would warp the stitching, but it might work.

Really, I'd probably investigate how HeatherSue's clippies construction works and do that. I'm notorious for making things harder than they need to be.


My PE500 was at the house when I got home and after walking the dog I got to open it up and start playing. I have a mug rug for a swap at another sight that I'm working on so it was the test. I need to actually work on sizing, but I wrote a whole phrase and it looks great!! I need to do more!!!

I think that some people leave the back blank but i like it better when the design is inverted and sewn onto the back.

I missed the part about sealing the ends of the ribbon. I do what other people do and just hold the end near a lit lighter. You don't have to even put the ribbon into the flame. It will immediately melt a bit and seal the ends. Just pull it away from the flame the second it starts to melt. Always works great for me.

I have used fray check on ribbon to seal the ends, and it works well. I make little ribbon hair clippies and korkers for DD and use it all the time. Much less scary than heat sealing too - I would be afraid of burning too much off the ribbon or burning myself or something else, lol.

It is very easy to heat seal ribbon. You just need a lighter or a candle. After you cut the ribbon to the length you want it, place the cut edge near the flame and wave the end of the ribbon close to the edge of the flame of either the lighter or the candle. You will see the end actually melt. You don't want to let it stay in one place near the flame- you will burn the ribbon so make sure it is moving while near the flame.

PRACTICE a few times with the ribbon you will be using so you can get the "feel" of how close you need to get to the flame and how long you need to keep it by the flame.

Good Luck!
