Knowing that I have about a full month of secret sewing work in front of me, I am excited to get to blog about a small bit of a recent finish. I finished a mini quilt for a swap, and I wanted to add a label (I’m trying to be better about labeling the quilts I work on!). Pondering for a moment, I struck on what I think is a brilliant idea: I used Lara @Buzzin Bumble‘s Crafted Applique method to make the label!
Now this is the part that gets me all excited: prep fabric and then cut label into any shape you want. Write details on label, and iron down.
Stitch label down using method of your choice. Since I had already finished the quilt, this either meant some kind of whip stitching or a large hand stitch.
Stand back, admire your work, and photograph before adding in any details to the label that might give something away!
Congratulations to Beth T, the winner of the Crafted Applique book giveaway!
There are still a few hours left in my Crafted Applique book giveaway (and the full blog hop schedule is below as well, with today’s post by my friend Kaja highlighted); it has seriously changed how I think about applique and clearly has me exploring ideas that I never thought were possible!
Linking up with Let’s Bee Social.
