This weekend though, I put some time aside and made the Issue 5 mini-project which is a Lovely Linen Gadget Case. I have never used Bonda-web (Wonda-web) to applique fabric before. I am a traditional kinda gal and usually stick to a nice blanket stitch. However, I am now a convert, it's so much easier using this quick iron on method and if you cut the Bonda-web to perfect size, there's no danger of frayed or tatty edges. Here's how my attempt to make up the mini-project turned out:
|Cutting the pieces and tracing the templates|
|Bonda-webbed the design, sewed what's meant to be a branch on with red embroidery thread|
|Right sides in, backstitch to finish - I hate running out of thread when you have such a small bit left to do!|
|The finished project in action|
I think it looks cute as a button matched with my red Babushka Ear Buds... Can't wait until Issue 6 to make the coin purse - and who knows, the Autumn might inspire a new design knot necklace after all...
