I finally got both Sue and Sam. Yeah! I wasn't sure about getting them but there was a mixup when I asked for pricing and she sent them to me as an order. (She's a nice lady, I'm going to pay her when she sends the bill.) Now that I have them in my hands, I want to keep them.
Those of you who have used the applique dies-
what is your advice?
Does grain of fabric really matter when using scraps?
Can they be done as needle turn applique without the adhesive stuff? If I want to do them by hand?
Can they be sewed by machine without the adhesive and just lots of pins? Or does it need the extra stabilizing to work best with machine sewing?
I haven't actually opened them yet, I'm wanted to advice so I don't mess up a bunch of fabric.
