I purchased this pattern ...
I'm making the runner with Michael Miller Fairy Frost Fabric with black as the background.
Runner is made but here's where the troubles started...
The directions call for me to "applique the stars, candy corn and vine". There is a layout diagram - full scale but no applique tempates.
For the stars I have used Steam a Seam Lite 2 and will have no issue with appliqueing them.
What method would you use to make the green vine and the candy corn?? I tried to paper piece the candy corn and was not happy with the resutls. I'm thinking about making a template for the candy corn and using Steam a Seam -- make an whole piece of candy corn in orange, then a smaller piece in yellow and then a smaller piece in white. I would then put a blanket stitch at the edges where those pieces meet.
How about for the green vine??? I can't even come up with an idea to make a wavy continuous vine.
(side note: this was not a cheap pattern - and really the only "directions" were what made the center panel which isn't difficult; this will make me reluctant to purchase other patterns without cracking them open and reading them first!)
Thanks for any help you may have!
