    Freezer Paper Applique' using glue.

    Please be patient with me I have a lot o' picts for this tute, I'll probably have ta post 'em in several different posts. I put a star on the back & Tx on the front of a pot holder. Most o' this tute will focus on the star but I will show a few o' the TX also.
    (Mental note: Don't ever Satin Stitch through 5 layers o' fabric & 2 washrags again!)
    (1) Cut out the shape out o' the freezer paper.
    (2) Press it ta the wrong side of the fabric.

    (5) Use either Roxanne's Basting Glue or Washable (as in water soluble) School Glue. I actually have the school glue in an old Roxanne's bottle. Put tiny drops o' glue in several places o' the seam allowance.

    When i printed the TX I forgot ta do it mirror image, so I thought I'd show how ta do it on the right side o' the fabric.
    (11) Iron the shape onto the right side o' the paper, & cut out around it about 1/4" all around.

    At this point ya can top stitch, buttonhole stitch, or any decorative stitch ya have. I chose satin stitch. Not such a good idea through all o' that thickness! I should have top stitched.
    (21) Sew the shape down.

    (If this was somethin' important, instead of just a pot holder, I would've gone back over the satin stitch ta make it smoother & more consistent.)

    I like the way you made this potholder. I can see how this would look terrific also using a QAYG block quilt. Making the front and the back of each block. Can this technique only be used with satin stitch or is the same effect achieved using the blanket or other design stitch?? Thank you so much for taking the time to show step by step how you used the glue to tack everything in place? I had wondered about this technique. Spray basting smaller pieces for applique always seemed so messy. I can see where this would be a better way to tack down smaller applique pieces that are two awkward for pinning or such. Great Job. Thanks Bev
    Have an awesome day!

    Oh yeah. Ya can use any stitch that ya want. I used the satin stitch 'cause I wanted that look on the front. This is a good technique for quilts. The satin stitch was very hard goin' through 2 washrags & 5 layers if fabric. Lookin' back I should have top stitched it. It would have looked so much better!!! As it is the satin stitch looks sloppy. Actually when I was thinkin' about this potholder I was thinkin' about usin' the MM method, but I told someone that I would do a tute for this method.

    I bought a bottle of Roxanne's Basting Glue at my LQS. I've seen it a Keepsake Quilting & Nancy's Notions, who both have websites. After that I buy School Glue (the kind that washes out) ta refill it. I have heard about tips that go on to the school glue bottles, but I haven't seen 'em. I hope this helps.
