Create this beautiful wall hanging to celebrate Easter. Fits same size dowel as our other wall hangings in this series. Use colorful scraps of fabric for eggs, tulips and butterfly. Hand or machine embroidery adds nice detail.
Iron fusible web onto the wrong side of fabric, cut out your pieces and remove the backing, then
use an applique pressing sheet to fuse the pieces together. The pieces will stick to each other - not
to the sheet! Then, simply peel your new applique off the sheet and iron it to your project.
This pattern is part of a seasonal and holiday series of wall hangings. They all use the same size of hanging sleeve, so they can easily be changed with the seasons.
Visit our store for gorgeous fabrics, many of which were chosen for our free patterns.
Applique Pressing Sheet
This is a special type of sheet used for creating detailed appliques. The pattern is placed on a working surface.
The pressing sheet is placed on top of the pattern, which can be seen through the sheet. Applique pieces
are placed on the pressing sheet. When pieces are bonded with fusible web, they will
stick to one another, but not to this sheet (they slightly stick - just enough to stay in place). When the applique is finished it is
easily peeled off the sheet and is ready to iron onto your background fabric.
Visit our Notions Store to purchase an applique sheet (great price) and for
more information on this item.
Fusible Web (or heat activated adhesive)
I used our Heat N Bond LITE, also available at our Notions Store.
I used about 1/2 yard off one of our rolls.
Stabilizer (for machine embroidery)
I used our Pelon stabilizer, also available at our Notions Store.
You will need a piece measuring 19.5" x 14.5".
Note, if you pre-wash fabric, do NOT use fabric softener. Washing will remove any sizing, which will allow for a stronger bond. I do not pre-wash and my pieces stick well. Any loose edges can be glued using
Our patterns download as pdf files. For instructions on downloading pdf files,
go to: pdf instructions.
Use the "Overall Layout" drawings as guides for placement of pieces.
Trace all pattern pieces onto paper side of fusible web. Pattern pieces will be backwards because the fusible web will be ironed onto WRONG SIDE of your fabric pieces. NOTE: There is one egg pattern. Use it to create your desired number of eggs.
2. Fuse fusible web onto wrong side of fabric pieces. Cut out pieces; remove paper.
3. Assemble tulips. Layer in numbered order. #1 is laid down first, #2 is ironed over #1, etc. Iron all tulip pieces together (tulip only - omit stems) to create each tulip. Set finished tulip tops aside.
