|Just look at this simple lettering....isn't it great? Now you can see where I am going with this.
|I am going to make 3 Christmas themed prayer flags. I cut out 3 pieces of wool blended felt (National Nonwovens TOY002) - size is 6x8
|The first one, I fused blue fabric (from my own line) to the front, and now I am cutting from the back, which is easier, because you have a guide.
|Green scraps of pre-Mistyfused fabrics to make a Christmas tree
|The tree. I wanted it patchworky looking. This could be a new word for 2014.
|Joy with the tree, but I feel that it needs something more to balance the piece
|The star drawn free-hand with a Pentel Gel Roller for Fabric pen. Draws like butter.
|Now we have a good composition and great colors that pop out of the background
|Here come the red scraps that are pre-Mistyfused
|I am going to make a patchworky heart. I drew the heart right on the fabric, to make it easier for myself, and I could see how it looked. Does it need more fabric? Well, yes it did, and I added more.
|"love" is now backed with red wool blended felt and ready to be free motion machine quilted
|The backs to see how they were each free motion machine quilted
|Wishing you and your family joy and love this Christmas!
