Summer has barely started and I am ready for some cooler weather. Well, I certainly don’t want to rush Father Time so I will be patient. While I am waiting, I will start working on some seasonal items. In-between my quilt projects, of course.
I have been fusing fabric together with Steam-A-Seam2, but I’m find this fusible hard to get the needle through. It’s a little hard on the fingers and hands. Especially when there are 3 layers! I think I’m going to try a lighter weighted fusible. Any suggestions? What do you use to fuse fabrics for appliqué work?
Pumkin parts are ready to be cut out.

|Appliqué Pressing Sheet|
I like using the appliqué pressing sheet. The pressing sheet goes over the design. I can see the design for placement and iron on the sheet. The fusible webbing does not stick to the sheet. I start ironing the smaller pieces together. I go backwards as I add the larger pieces. This makes it easier to place each piece in its proper spot.

|Button Hole Stitch|
I finished the Snowman and I am thinking of selling these as decorative mug rugs instead of potholders. The reason for this? I have been embellishing the 'potholders' with buttons and they might melt if a hot pot is put on them. I think they will make a very festive mug rug, don't you?
