Machine Applique the Pattern Poole Way



Choose your favourite Pattern Poole pattern (they're all super-cute, so this is the hardest part of the class!) and learn how easy it is to machine applique with fusible web. The applique shapes are beginner-friendly and each wall hanging is small (about 12" x 16"), so this is a manageable introduction to a fun technique.
Skill Level:
intermediate
Requirements:
Pattern: Your choice of any Pattern Poole designs Fabric: Background, backing, and fusible fleece as per pattern; Scraps of fabric appropriate for your design. Bring more than you think you'll need! Steam-a-Seam II Lite: As per pattern (plus a little extra) (SKU 6580) or Steam-a-Seam II Lite Value Pack (SKU 14255); Supplies Sewing machine in good working condition, with manual, all accessories, and new Topstitch 80/12 needle. Don't forget your power cord and foot control; Thread: 100% polyester 100-wt (InvisaFil) or 100% cotton 60-wt (Efina). You can match your threads to your fabrics or choose one contrasting colour to use throughout; Awl; Curved safety pins (SKU 351232); Sharp fabric scissors; Craft/paper scissors; Masking tape; Sharp pencil and gum eraser; Applique pressing sheet (SKU 1100695) ; Light box if you have one or an acrylic extension table and a light that will fit under it (we'll have a few in class, so don't worry too much); Basic sewing kit: Seam ripper, thread snips, etc. Before class: Please trace your pattern pieces onto the gridded side of your Steam-a-Seam II Lite, using a pencil (ink doesn't work so well on the parchment). Leave about 1/2" space between pieces. Alternatively, you can print the pattern pieces onto the Value Pack sheets using an inkjet (not laser) printer. Please note: your pattern pieces are in reverse, so don't be alarmed if they don't look right.
