Working on my half of an art trade with rasuzu and I figured I’d show you guys a neat little trick i discovered for cutting more complex shapes from fabric accurately. It’s pretty self-explanatory but basically:
1. Trace image with tracing paper and transfer onto back (paper side) of heat’n bond - it will be reversed/backwards but it’s supposed to look that way
2. Iron it on
3. Cut out the shape(s) on the lines that you transferred
5. It is now ready to iron on to your fabric of choice
Heat’n bond is basically a sheet of paper that’s sticky on one side and you can iron it onto the back of fabric to make the fabric stick to things like t-shirts or… other fabric haha, there are lots and lots of different brands of this stuff out there but this is by far the best one I’ve ever used. It’s great for appliques and little details like this - just be sure to cover your fabric piece with some scrap cloth when ironing it down to protect it.
yeah… sewing is cool
