First day of summer and Lesson #2 in wool applique..........
The last "lesson" I traced and roughly cut out my patterns on the tracing paper and gathered my wool. Next I chose my pieces of wool and the patterns and ironed them onto the wool. I trace the patterns onto the dull side of the freezer paper and then iron it onto the wool with the shiny side facing the wool. You don't iron it for long...I usually just run the iron over it like 10 seconds tops and it sticks! Freezer paper that you buy at the local grocery store! Who knew?
Below and above is what it looks like after I've ironed them all onto the wool.
P.S. I have been negligent about visiting you all and I am trying to catch up. I've just been really working hard around here on other projects and still having a bit of a problem with my pc being extremely SLOW....I'm really hoping I don't need a new one.....ahhhh! It would really put a crimp in my budget! We shall see.
