Thumb Printing and Mixing Colours ~ Painted Flowers

The kids had so much fun the first time they experimented with Thumb Print Art, I thought we'd have another go. Not only is thumb printing fun, it's an easy way to produce a piece of artwork that you will be happy to have hanging on the wall.

How to Appliqué with Scribbly Stitching

The other day I showed you how to use an appliqué template to prepare shapes and fuse them onto fabric. Today I'll show you the method I often use to stitch raw edge appliqué. I call it scribbly stitching, but I've also seen it referred to as wonky stitching or sketchy stitching.

How to Appliqué ~ Preparing Shapes and Fusing to Base Fabric

Last week I showed you nine robots, fused and ready to stitch. Today I thought I'd show you the process - from the diagram of a robot on a piece of paper, to an appliquéd robot on fabric. The tutorial will show you how to appliqué your own robot and includes a link for the free PDF template for the Robot Mechanic.
