Hey, gang. Our trip to D.C. was fun and we got to visit some fabulous friends. And we got home soon enough that I was able to head up to the craft room to make something.
I had this tie napkin pinned, but when I went to follow the link, it was dead. Still, I know how to do a fusible applique. Mostly. Sometimes. When I finally remember to use tear-away stabilizer. I figured it out on my own, but what I realize now is there was a reason I had pulled out a striped fabric. Stripes would make it easier to see the difference between the knot and the tie. In this example, not so much. But you get the idea. I love this fabric as a tie, even if the execution is iffy.
I did another search, and I found a new link to this project. This is pretty much how I made it up as I went along.
Remember to use stripes!
