hex horse fabric!
I've kept the papers in place until I was ready to 'merge' the two pieces!
This was good TV work!!! I use a wide piece of masking tape to hold my threads...that's the beige blob/piece is on the left!
Most of the papers have been removed at this point.
All the papers are gone!! Next I pressed the piece really well.
Really, this part wasn't that hard...the fusing of the cut out horse....although, I've been known to fuse something to something it shouldn't be fused to! Haven't we all at one time or another!
All fused down and no problem!
I already had fusible web on the entire back of the cut out horse, which allowed me to fuse some interfacing so I could stitch around the horse using a button hole stitch.
I know this picture doesn't look that different from the one above, but this one is stitched around the edges...honest!!
You can see the stitches here.
Its turning out, so far, to what I had in mind. I'll add some pencil or paint to give more definition to the horses shoulder/legs and of course he'll need some beads for his mane and tail! And an eye! Right!
