'Forget Me Not' is the lovely range of fabric, designed by Sue Daley for Penny Rose Fabrics (sister company of Riley Blake). If you love EPPing, Sue has just started Forget Me Not Sew Along. I may just need to add this project to my to-do list.
I've created quite a few projects with this fabric range (click the link to have a look at what else I've made), but today, I couldn't resist using some scraps and incorporating it into my next project for Handmade Magazine.
Forget Me Not works so beautifully with this Indigo washed linen/cotton blend fabric. I'm already imagining this project finished with a red-white stripe or gingham binding. *Le sigh* so pretty.
I used iron-on applique paper to make these hexies. I created an A4 sheet of hexagons using Microsoft Word and then printed on to the special paper. Cut them out and ironed onto the back of the fabric.
When I appliqué the hexies to the background fabric, the papers stay in place. The paper dissolves in to fibers with water. Cool, right?
I recently did a class with Helen Stubbings who introduced me to this paper. I bought a pack on the day of the class to play with at home. If you'd like to try it, search the Hugs n Kisses website for packs of applique paper or precut EPP pieces.
Would you like to try out this applique paper?
I have a spare sheet of printed hexagons which I'll give away. Just leave a RANDOM comment and I'll choose a winner on the weekend.
Now, I have some hexies to put together tonight... with some Gilmore Girls to keep me company. After watching 6 seasons of 'Lost' on Netflix and coming away at the end, completely confused by the finale, Lorelai and Rory are old friends who I look forward to visiting with, again.
Have you watched Lost?
Did you understand the ending?
