Just click on the picture and a link will take you to the PDF file. The file has the paper pieced patterns, the applique patterns and the cutting directions. The pattern will finish to a 12" block.
Have you ever appliqued with organza. It took some sleepless nights and some rethinking to come up with a way to make sheer ghosts. Here is the process that I finally used.
Cut ghost out directly on the drawn line. Using a permanent black marker trace eyes and nose of ghost onto organza. Do this is several steps to keep the ink from running. Press with dry iron to set after every application of ink. If the ink does run it just adds to the ghostly image. Mine ran.
Peel off paper and place ghosts onto sewn block following placement picture in pattern. Again following manufacturers directions fuse organza to block.
Using Glow in the dark white thread and a small open zigzag stitch, stitch around both ghosts. This small zigzag stitch will cover the fusible web so that it is not seen and gives definition to the ghost.
To further celebrate Tempting Thursday I have one other item to tempt you with.
A pair of ghostly pincushions. Just click on their picture and it will take you to the PDF file pattern/tutorial for this ghostly pair. Don't forget to check out the rest of my blog. It is full of other wicked projects for Halloween from this year and last.
