    Izy's way of doing freezer paper applique!

    My friend Hilary, (CoventryUK) requested a tute on how I do my applique using freezer paper! This is a quick, easy way to do 'functional' applique, such as on kid's quilts where it will be laundered a lot etc.

    I saved this to remind myself how you use freezer paper. I will try this method when I do an applique project.

    Wonderful! I've always wondered why applique is not stitched down in this way....seems like a quicker and stronger method.

    I agree LavenderBlue, that said I love hand applique too and haven't tried hand stitching using this method, maybe I will have a go sometime and let you all know if it works!

    Thanks for all your lovely compliments, I love to share!

    This method works very well to with hand stitching but for a kids quilt or a quilt that is washed often the
    machine stitch is more durable.

    Great tutorial. Thanks. This is how I do my applique but have always had trouble with getting those pesky little places like you did on the circle but your technique of the little ripples should do the trick.

    Thanks Mimi, it's frustrating when you get the little points but this way it's easy to correct with out distorting the fabric, glad you like the tute!

    Thank you so very much for making such a terrific tutorial. I've been doing needle turn and this looks much easier and should produce a clean applique. You are a special person to share your talent.

    So does this mean that your freezer paper acts as a stabilizer too? Looks like a good one-step sewing method. Thanks for sharing!
