You should be arriving from Angie's Blog.
I have been challenging myself to step outside of my card making and create new and unusual projects. (i get in a rut and just stay there if i don't) So today's post has sewing and an applique made from a Brick People file. Let's get started!
First, here are the lyrics:
McCall's pattern #2947
Kona Cotton fabric in Black~1 yard
Wright's Black Hem Tape
Egyptian STAR Cotton Machine Quilting Black Thread
Many assorted color cotton scraps (from my quilting projects)
Heat and Bond Lite
The very first step to this project is making the apron. Get that out of the way first. You need to have this completed so that you can iron on the applique pieces.
The next step is importing the Brick People file into your cutting program and making it the size your want. Then, measure each piece and cut a square of fabric and apply the Heat and Bond according to their directions. Next cut out the file piece using your cutter. I used my Zenith Zing with a force of 80, 3 passes and just a regular blade. I found that a really sticky mat is the key. Also place the paper side up, just seems to work better.
After you have ALL the fabric pieces cut, you can start to assemble your Brick Person.

And now here is the finished apron!

I hope that you give this a try. It's a great way to make a very special
gift for that someone special.
