As you can see from the photo, there are lots of what I call blank spaces throughout some of the designs. I am linking to my tutorial about how to do this particular process. It's a bit time consuming but well worth the effort.
- Below are the patterns I used. Just right click on each page then copy and paste them into you own document. You can then enlarge each pattern to your desire.
- I chose fabrics that would show off the silhouettes.
- I used Steam-a-seam or Heat-n-Bond as an adhesive backing on the black silhouette fabric.
- Note: One thing I failed to mention in the last video is that I had removed the adhesive before the final placement and pressing.
- After pressing the silhouettes into place, I stitch the raw edges into place stitching as close to the edges of each pattern as possible.
- The videos were made in August 2009 where I mentions a silhouette give away of that cow. Well obviously that was years ago but I do have a little surprise this August 2013. Scan down to the bottom of this post to see what's up.
The tiger is an example of another way to use an image as a silhouette and use more colors to jazz up the image.
It is my give away design for this particular post.
It is unfinished in that I have not stitched it down, never got around to it so it landed in my UFO box......LOL.
If you are interested in this unfinished block measuring
approximately 12 1/2 inches just leave a comment and mention
and it's that easy!!
