First... grab a bunch of scraps, and press them flat.
Now you want to trim them up into any shape you want. I place the pieces on a fusible batting. (or you can use spray stuff too) Then I iron them down with a HOT iron.
Then the edges that are over lapping the other fabrics need to be glued down. I use Tombo Mono Aqua Liquid Glue. ( I love this glue) It works great with fabric. You can find it a Joann's and other craft stores. I place a little bit on the edges of the fabric, press it down with my fingers...then I place my iron on it to make sure it is completely dry.
Then I flip over the project and trim the edges to the batting!! Add a back, and get ready for quilting and adding lots of fun stuff :):)
I start adding yarns, ribbons, and all kinds of yummy things.
I put my machine on a tiny little zigzag and hold my yarn and just let the yarn flow over the project.
Here is the final piece...can I add anything more?.... this is were I have a hard time...when do I stop. :):)
But...I'm not done yet!!
Here I have flipped over the piece and chop it up to the size pieces that I want. 2 (4x6) pieces, and 2 (atc's). It is always a mystery at this point...I can't see the other side...so who knows what will show up when I turn them over :):)
Cool pieces right!! It is so fun to try and use your scraps up by just playing with the leftover pieces. At this time I will finish the edges, and add embellishments. (the bling:)
Here is finished quiltie # 1
