A while back Sewing with Nancy had a guest who made some very realistic leaves (they were huge!), where the edges of the leaves curled up, etc.
I cannot find the show notes, but I think she used a special stabilizer to get them to form into the shape she wanted. I have found INNSPIRE, and think that may be what she used. But it is crazy expensive! One sheet 20X36 at Keepsake Quilting costs $20!
I want to do a wall hanging where I would need several sheets of INNSPIRE - that is too much!
What other way could I make my leaves (normal size), appear to be floating down my quilt? I want to make hundreds of leaves, and they will have writing on them (not sure what kind of pen I will be using).
Any suggestions? Do you think a starch would work? Or should I decopauge it?
