Sometimes a friendship group meets and I just don't want to work on the same old hand sewing project. So I'm reaching for my Primitives Projects and More magazine (Spring 2012 edition) and low and behold if I don't find another cute project to whip up real quick. "Hooray for Spring" by Maggie Bonanomi.
I grabbed wools that look close to the one's in the photo and iron on my freezer paper templates.
I like to use small, very sharp point, serrated scissors to cut my wool.
I lay it out first to get a feel for were everything will fit.
Using a fine point permanent marker to transfer the saying to muslin. I really like this idea and the look of it, plus it keeps me from having to stitch all of that in place. Remember to press to heat set.
Placements looking good, time to glue baste it down. I'm missing the gold for birds legs and other flower berries but if I eat a few more valentine candy I should be able to find them.
I hope everyone gets to work on something fun this Wednesday.
