As I was editing the pictures today, I realized that I don't have pictures of exactly EVERY step, but I think you all are smart enough, that you'll figure things out. You can find my reveal post *here* which also includes the links from the other participants in Four-In-Art.
Reverse applique, instead of cutting out and applying a bunch of small individual pieces of fabric, you cut out one large piece of fabric and lay it over another piece of fabric and applique it down. In this case I laid it over many smaller pieces of fabric. You'll see.
Then using a light box I trace the image, IN REVERSE, onto the paper side of Wonder Under 805. Next I fused the whole thing to a piece of black fabric.
TIP #1 I used a black batik fabric. Hoffman batiks, raven. Why? Because a batik is more tightly woven and less prone to fraying when used for raw edge applique.
TIP #2. Leave the large pieces that will be cut to the end. This helps stabalize the whole piece while you are cutting out the little fussy pieces.
Once all the fabric was line up, trimmed and glued in place, I fused the whole thing together on top of a piece of fusible fleece. You could probably use any fusible batting, that it what I happened to have immediately available.
Now to get all of them out, photographed, labeled and I'll write up a review post of these last five years.
