Holes made with a Soldering Iron

12th September 2013

The postman arrived with my soldering iron at 12.30 yesterday and I started playing at 1.30pm!!
I needed a piece of glass, organza fabric and the lovely metal templates that were a birthday gift.
Of course it took me an hour to find the templates-I had put them in a safe place!!!!



Ready to go..

I practised cutting around some flower templates....


then square templates..


I have a collection of organza fabrics and this was made using an oddment which was really cheap, I love the colours. I 'cut' the squares in double layers and fixed with the iron onto a black piece of organza. There is NO stitching in this sample, it is all done with the soldering iron!!

Next I 'cut' flower shapes in white organza...


placed this on my dyed cotton, wadding and a backing fabric, then free stitched.


I think I'm going to have a lot of fun experimenting with my new toy!!
