Workshop Wednesday # 8 – How to appliqué using felt

I love working with felt as it comes in great colours, doesn’t fray when you cut it and is a great fabric for children to start crafting with. This is a simple tutorial on how to appliqué a motif in felt that I use with my year sevens at school.

First cut two pieces of felt. One for the background and one a simple motif.

Sew around the motif with a running stitch using embroidery thread that you have secured on the back of the fabric.
