Sew along - Appliqué Week 2 & 3

Just to refresh our memory, week 2 (18-24 April) task was to trace the pattern on the interface, iron onto the fabrics and cut the pattern out while week 3 (25 April - 1 May) task is to arrange the cut pattern onto the background fabric and iron. 

Here's my progress for week 2:
Though the instruction was to trace the pattern onto the interface first, I obviously went and did it the other way around *silly me* It was messy when I tried to iron the fabric onto the interface before cutting the pattern out *long sigh* but it did turn out OK in the end - cost double the amount of time actually needed if I had followed the instruction properly *roll eyes*

Anyway, I traced the pattern onto the fabric and cut it out first. A point to remember is to have the right sides of both the pattern and the fabric facing together. 

I used my scrap interface collected from all my previous projects (bag making mostly) for this purpose instead of the double sided fusible web
Week 3: 
While arranging the interfaced pattern onto the background fabric, it would be wise to have a copy of the whole pattern underneath the background fabric, as it helps with the placement of each pattern.  

I used handcraft bond (as suggested by Mila) to secure each pattern onto the background fabric. *It was really fun and Sofea was green with jealousy as I didn't allow her to `help' *

And so here you are, all done and waiting for the next and final stage - to appliqué the pieces (2 - 8 May)
Visit our beloved Kak Dee to see the complete project - She turned hers into a wall hanging *lovely* 

Do drop by to see Mila, and as everything with this diligent lady, she did not just make 1 but 2 *OMG* of the appliqué tops with an added little something. Can't wait to see what she will turn them into.   

Visit Ariza, Suzie, Anic and Bea who have completed stage 2 and/or stage 3 of the sew along.

Have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting..
