I found other interesting links... The previous links I found were using Satin Stitch but I think the concepts apply to straight stitch for going round corners, circle etc..
Here is a nice video tutorial using straight stitch with raw edge:
------Oh... it looks so useful to have a walking foot.. I want one.. :)
Another useful video with the details of cutting fusible web and ironing:
Other nice video tutorials of machine applique with hiding edges for future projects :) :
Some real work:
I have the pattern cut out already.. Just on normal paper... aiyah... actually, I could have traced the pattern directly on fusible web which is what we supposed to do...
I have the habit of cutting out patterns and then use that to trace on fabric... (for hand sewn applique).
|Cut not exactly the way the pattern was printed... added my own taste.. :)|
Presser foot which I may use... if not just the normal foot:
The tutorial said we could use either very light or very dark background... I am going to try a dark one, hope it turns out well. I want to make a blue bag.
A side note, anyone interested with the below little iron? I saw it in one of the above videos, looks useful. :)
Emma has it on her blog:
Emma doesn't have it in stock but if there are 5 units, she could help purchase. It is RM78 each. This is unconfirmed information, if there is interest, I could check.
Bye now and have a good weekend,
