I am making the fatcatpattern.com block of the month series called "Flowers" (go to fatcatpatterns-it is on the same page as the Baltimore Blocks so popular here right now!) There are 8 blocks there.(so far) I am hand appliquing them all. I am stumped as to how to do the flower "stems" on the first block. should I steam a seam it and go back later to use sewing machine? should I use heat and bond light? should I do a bias tape of my own fabric and hand applique? I would like to hand applique but don't have a clue. I know how to make bias tape but how do I get it the shape I want? I know there is someone out there who is a PRO at this... anybody know what Roxannes glue is? Looked at a bunch of tutorials and this was mentioned along with "bias tubes"... sorry this long..
