Wool Applique Class Pre-work Assignment

So that we can work with the applique process, only, during our class, please pick up your kit early and do the following before class:

  •        Make the background. You will follow instructions 1-14 in the pattern. 

o   Suggestions. Starch your fabric heavily before cutting. This will give you better accuracy when cutting. 

o   Cut the tan rectangles. 

o   Cut the tan and red strips into strips without cutting the lengths. Cut the lengths as you are ready to use them. This way if your seam allowance is not perfect you can make slight adjustments in length to match your product.

o   I made sure that the rectangles remained the correct shape as I added the sashing strips. 

o   Because there is such a contrast between the tan and red, this is important. 

o   If you need help with this, signup for the WIP in August and I will help you get ready for class.  

  •        Turn the applique pattern upside down and trace the pattern onto the flat side of freezer paper. Leave a little space between each piece. When you trace group the pieces together that are the same color. This makes it easier later. Be sure and mark what bird each piece goes to on the freezer paper (in the center of the pattern).

You will need 

  •        a #24 Crewel needle
  •        Thimble
  •        Thread to match wool colors for sewing pieces to your background. 
  •        A good pair of small scissors that you can use to cut through freezer paper and the wool. 
  •        A Ziplock bag to hold the applique pieces.
