reverse applique??

New postby Sews4kate on Wed Aug 29, 2007 9:20 pm

I was looking at a pair of pajama's my ds got as a gift. It has a cute applique on in it, but it wasn't done the way I normally do appliques, it was on the inside and the shirt fabric appears to be cut away to reveal the fabric that was sewn on underneath. Did I make sense?? Anyway, does anyone know the process of doing something like that? it looks really neat!

never mind! I googled it and found this great set of instructions! http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/cr_quilting_in ... 20,00.html

if anyone has any tips or anything, I'd still love to hear them!

ok, me again, just trying to think this through. would I need to use any stabilizer? anything like "heat and bond" (I don't think so)? How do you keep the fabric from shifting while you are sewing?

Just guessing - my son has a tshirt like that - that you'd need to baste it. Unless you made the underneath fabric lots bigger than your cut out - then you could fuse it around the edge but it would probably not hold it well enough in place. Or maybe a fusible washaway of some kind?

Wendy, I am looking forward to seeing you do this one. IT looks like something I would like to try for a Christmes gift. Just glancing at the instructions it looked complicated.

I did something like that once. I did it by hand and there were two layers. It went white, light blue, dark blue. It would have looked better white, dark blue, light blue I think.

Doing it by hand I just cut a little, stitched it on both sides, then cut a little more. I was doing an outline drawing and had to be really careful not to cut off anything I wanted to keep!!
It went really fast.

With what you want to do on the machine I would say (and I know you don't want to hear this) hand baste around everything first. Not really big stitches because you really want to hold it tight in place.

That is really cute. I may have to attempt something for Christmas - oh darn, there's that white word again.
