I’m excited to kick off the Laser Cut Fusible Applique Blog Tour today, to celebrate my newest product line—Fusible Fabric Wall Décor made with Laser Cut Fusible Applique from the The Creative Iron. There are 12 laser cut appliqués that feature interests and hobbies. Perfect for framing on stretched canvas, in a purchased frame, or as a wall quilt, these appliqués will add style to your décor.
I am especially fond of the multiple-word laser cut appliques. Read, Relax, Enjoy, Learn is an ideal gift for a book club friend!
I gathered the supplies listed on the Clover’s Tablet Keeper Template package:
- Fabric for outer tablet, inner tablet, and accents. A fat quarter collection is ideal!
- Clover’s Pre-cut Tablet Keeper Shapers
- Fusible Interfacing such as Pellon Shirtailor or Lazy Girl Designs Face It Soft
- Ultra Firm Stabilizer such as Pellon Peltex or Lazy Girl Designs Stiff Stuff
- Clover’s Double Sided Basting Tape, optional
- Clover’s 5/8″ Create-A-Strap
- 1-1/2″ x 5/8″ Velcro® or Sew-on Hook and Loop Tape
- 1/2″ wide quality elastic or one non-slip hair band. (The hair band elastic is the best; it’s thicker and often has a silicone backing.)
- PLUS Heat N Bond Iron-on Vinyl
Assemble the Tablet Keeper
- Following the directions included with the Tablet Keeper Template cut fabrics and press fusible interfacing to fabric back. I chose the medium size from the Original Trace ‘n Create Tablet Keeper Template for my iPad and I decided to combine the paper tablet and electronic tablet views.
For this project, I cut away the word “Read” from the Read Relax Enjoy Learn design. Not to worry I have future plans for the remaining words.
I positioned my new single word “Read” on the front cover of the outer Tablet Keeper fabric. Hint: I overlayed the template back on the fabric to make certain the word would fall in the right position!
Press into place.
Peel away the paper backing and the vinyl-coated fabric is revealed. No need to stitch the design in place when using the Heat N Bond Iron-on Vinyl.
Cut fabrics for the inner Tablet Keeper, following the instructions for the paper tablet!
Assemble Tablet Keeper following instructions included with the Tablet Keeper Template. But here’s the dual-purpose idea we discovered. Add the elastic straps for the reader version as well! Why didn’t I think of this sooner, hmm.
Now I can read with style on my iPad.
Or I can write in style with my paper tablet.
Now announcing the Laser Cut Fusible Applique Blog Tour
A few creative bloggers have been selected to participate in this week-long Blog Tour.
