HOW TO… APPLIQUÉ WITH BLANKET STITCH EDGE
Our sausage dog looks extra sweet with his floral stitched coat.
IRON Bondaweb to the reverse of your fabric, and using the template below, trace the coat outline onto the paper backing, remembering to reverse the template.
CUT out the motif and peel off the Bondaweb’s paper backing. Place the adhesive side of the fabric in position onto your evenweave, and iron in place.
ADD blanket stitch around the fabric edge. Knot your thread and bring your sharp needle up at A. Take the needle down at B, 2-3mm away, keeping the thread loop on the surface. Bring the needle up at C, through the loop and pull to tighten.
WORK the next stitch by taking the needle down at D, about 2-3mm from your previous stitch, keeping the thread loop on the surface. Bring your needle up at E, through the loop, and pull to secure, and so on.
