This is Gail’s latest love – and when you see how easy and versatile it is to use , you will love it too. A great way to add simple bling to your projects.
Gail started the love affair with glitterfelt when she created her Unicorn cushions, but then went on to use it in so many more of her projects.
The simplest way is to use it as fused appliqué; but then Gail thought maybe she could find a way of using the felt, so that the end result wasn’t so firm – and came up with a glueless method using freezer paper. Ths uses the paper as a template which saves on drawing (as you only need one template!) and is therefore so much quicker and more accurate.
Another great tip from Gail that she shares with us is about quilting your project – how about quilting the background first and then adding the appliqué.
Finally, you get some thoughts from Gail on the thread to use – she likes the YLI invisible because it does just what it says, and is therefore much more forgiving you can use it on all the colours, – think about the needles, and also about the stitch
Here are links to the patterns that Gail mentions:
Unicorn – called fantasy
Santas Parcel wreath
All that Glitters (Sophie) pattern and glitter pack set
Santa Advent (that she has called Charlie)
Christmas Tweets cushion
