MAKE AN… AP­PLIQUÉ DRESS

Al­though very ef­fec­tive, this lit­tle dress on a wash­ing line is su­per-easy to do!

Cross Stitcher - - The Savvy Stitcher -

Step1

PRE­PARE your fabric with a piece of Bon­daweb. Bon­daweb can be bought on­line or from your lo­cal hab­er­dash­ery. It has an ad­he­sive side which is backed with pa­per – place the ad­he­sive side to the back of your fabric and iron in place.

Step 2

USE the dress tem­plate be­low to trace the out­line onto the Bon­daweb pa­per back­ing. Re­verse the tem­plate as it will be mir­rored once placed right-side up on the fabric’s sur­face. Cut out and re­move the pa­per back­ing.

Step3

PO­SI­TION the fabric dress on your even­weave fabric and iron in place, with­out us­ing steam. The ad­he­sive side will bond to your cross stitch fabric. Re­peat when ap­ply­ing the bird mo­tifs too.

Step 4

ADD a freestyle back­stitch out­line around the dress, inset from the fabric edge. Use a sin­gle strand and sharp em­broi­dery nee­dle to fol­low the dress shape and work your back­stitches.
