Let’s say that you downloaded a baby mobile pattern and want to cut all those tiny pieces to create a cute plushie. I know that it is very difficult to follow the pattern lines especially for pieces such as the eyes.
Today I started making a safari mobile for a baby shower and tried to use the magic Freezer paper!
I used different types of felt and decided that the best for those little stuffed animals is the premium wool blend felt. I ordered the one with 40% wool. For experimenting a bit, I tried to use freezer paper with synthetic felt. The result is not the same.
This is the process for the premium wool blend felt:
- Cut out all templates of the appliques you want to create.
- Trace around each template onto freezer paper; iron the freezer paper to the felt. Keep ironing for about 10 seconds on each area.
- Cut out each piece of felt along the pattern lines. Peel off the paper.
- Start sewing!!!
Hope this makes you life easier 🙂
