Tracing large animals

…onto fusible web.



(don’t forget the spots…)



And then fusing that fusible web to flannel.


In June.

So unlike me.

EDITED TO ADD: This is going to be a flannel version of Giraffes, Elephants & Hippos! Oh My! A free pattern on the Michael Miller site.

And a little bit more stem stitching thrown in. You know, to keep the insanity at bay.

    what for? TELL ME!!!! I want a giant hippo (much stamping of feet going on here)

    Oh…the covered notebook? Mine is a half inch too small. DAMMIT.

    ps – I sent you a really, really long email earlier…only for my pesky broadband to cut out as it sent, so it didn’t send, so now I’m sulking

    I love the variegated thread you used for the vine. And you know I love those Kaffes.

    boy that sidetracked me – there I was, ready to comment on your lovely flannels and then I was immersed in free quilt patterns at Michael Miller – don’t you just love how the fabric companies do this! I can’t wait to see how the applique progresses – you do such beautiful applique Amy. And your embroidery looks WONDERFUL! Oh that Kaffe Fassett background is bee-yoo-ti-ful. 🙂 Don’t slow down over summer dear girl – what will I drool over!

    I have got to try that new fusible web GLenna talks about. It is an inport from Japan (of course). I don’t use fusible much myself. But there are times. Yes. This is going to be cute.

    Woman you are a machine!!! I can’t believe you’ve nearly finished a block!!! And in Kaffe too…. I might have to make another one, I don’t like mine any more 🙂 tee hee

    Thanks for the tip! A beautiful embroidered giraffe was given to me and has been searching for some friends to join it in a quilt….I think we have just found them!
