I received the blocks for December and January and the backround last week so today I decided to work on January's block (I can do December later to display next year).
First I had to trace the pattern in reverse, you'll see why in a minute
Then I had to trace the reversed pattern on fusible web, I used "Lite Steam-A-Seam 2"
I traced all the pieces on the fusible web and assembled my block to make sure I had all the pieces:
Then I peeled off the backing, I must admit I forgot to do this with the snow drops and had to cut more out of the fusing.
Then using an iron I pressed it to my fabric to fuse it and cut out each piece.
I peeled off the top protective sheet, leaving the fusible web exposed.
I put the fusible side down on the backround fabric:
I put all the pieces in place and fused them together. (This is the reason you reverse the pattern)
Now I have stitch down all the pieces and do the embroidery work. It's going to be so cute, can't wait to see how it turns out.
