Most of the things I make involve some applique work, which is to patch or “apply” something to the original piece of fabric. I love the extra dimension it gives, lifting what might be plain and utilitarian into something beautiful. I’ve recently been making an owl bag for a very lovely lady. Today I thought I would give you some insight into one of the handmade processes that went into making it: how to applique using bondaweb.
I’ve always been one of those crafty types; drawing, painting, sticking, making. Years passed and when I tried to tell the Little Beanie that I’m a doctor, she said, “Don’t be silly Mummy.” She might be wrong about that, but she’s absolutely right when she sends me home from the school drop-off telling me “Do your sewing work mummy… and the ironing.”
