When your daughter asks you to make some alphabet bunting for her new classroom, it sounds like a simple task - and THEN she presents you with a cursive font!! This font just has SO many curves! Using a lightbox and the printed font facing wrong side up so the letters can be traced in reverse onto steam-a-seam lite, the letters were traced leaving a small gap between each one...
...the steam-a-seam letters were roughly cut out, fused onto the wrong side of the fabric, and cut out exactly on the drawn line. This navy blue fabric will contrast well with the prints that I'm using for the bunting...
...the backing paper is peeled off the letters, and they're pressed into place. I'd already fused some lightweight interfacing onto the back of a 6" strip of fabric, and using a Tri-Recs triangular ruler, cut out several triangles for the bunting. Next step is to stitch these letters into place using raw edge applique, but I'm not looking forward to stitching all those curves!!
