Winnie the Pooh Appliques/Patches

New postby Sew_Little_Time on Wed Oct 03, 2007 10:30 am

Hello! (& Help!) I've recently made a "travel diaper pad" and need to find an applique to cover up an unsightly spot I created - does anyone know where I can go to find them online? I don't have anything locally, and need this within a week! :boohoo:

Is there a way to create your own? (Any charachter from Winnie The Pooh, would work for me) Thanks for any advice!

You could try cutting the characters out of a cotton print and appliqueing them on.

Y'all knew I was going to say that didn't ya.

Thanks Dorothy - I'm guessing that it would need to be zig-zagged around edges and backed....what would be the best backing to use as this item will not go in washing machine.

You know those "envelope" clutch purses that have the fold-over flaps - that's what this diaper pad looks like when folded up...it closes with velcro at the point of the envelope....I have to cover that area due to unsightly bias tape "junction" right there, at the point. Further advice very much appreciated!

If you get Heat and Bond -- the kind for fabric. Make sure it is the kind for fabric-- you can just put it on and satin stitch, zig zag, or even just straight stitch around it. If you straight stitch the Heat and Bond will keep it from fraying. You could also put it on iron on interfacing then put that on the Heat and Bond. The interfacing pads it for a little more pop and helps with the fraying as well.

Dorothy and Donna also gave a great explanation on another way to do appliques here.
