You can do needle turn applique but I find you lose the rounded edge. I used to hand sew around the raw edge with a herringbone embroidery stitch. Now I use the buttonhole stitch on my machine to sew around the raw edge.

This may be a stupid question but approx. how much fabric does it take to make one plate? I know the pattern repeat makes a difference but I'm used to doing S&W and that takes lots of yardage. I'm thinking of making candle mats and/or mug rugs. Thanks

I usually get a yard for making the DKs. I can get about 6 out of one yard usually. Yes it does make a difference if the repeats are wider or closer together.

I usually find 5 repeats in a quarter yard so I suppose for one DK you would need a half yard. You have to be careful because some repeats can be on the edge and get cut off. so count all 10 of the repeats before you buy the fabric.

I'm making hotpads right now with them. I have started buying an extra yard so I can use the same fabric for the backing. I like to show the fabric the DK came from.

Thanks, Rhonda. I've wanted to try one but had other projects I needed to get done. These would make great Christmas gifts.
