Appliqué

Each of the Forest Friends can be created with a raw edge appliqué technique.

Here are some basic steps to try:

Using your favorite fusible interfacing, trace the Forest Friend’s parts individually onto the paper side. Tracing creates a reverse image so flip if desired.

Cut out the pieces of the Forest Friend, leaving a generous allowance around each piece.

Iron the fusible interfacing to the WRONG side of the desired fabric.

Cut out along the line on the fusible interfacing.

Peel the paper backing from the fusible interfacing.

Iron the Forest Friend pieces in place on the background fabric.

Stitch along the edges of the owl using a straight stitch, zig zag or satin stitch.

Embroidery

Not only are the Forest Friends great for appliqué, you might also choose to grab some embroidery floss and stitch him up!

Here are some basic steps to try:

Using a light box, trace the outline of the owl lightly on the front side of the fabric to be embroidered.

Select fun colors for stitching. Use an outline stitch and stitch over the marked lines.

Embellish with buttons, bows, yarn or beads as desired.
