In the pic you can see my 'White chocolate Strawberry Almond Cheese Cake' I am sending to a chocolate event in blogger.
A holiday table runner embellished with appliqued stars over Red Christmas Robbins perched on pine twigs N cones..The stars have been cut out from hard drawing paper using cookie cutters of various sizes ..Since the cookie cutters didnot have such sharp points I had to make some changes in the drawing...These were then used as templates for the stars from the fabric as well as from the fusible web.....The fabric cuts were then stitched along with the similar cuts of fusible web ..(The right side of the fabric and the sticky side of the web facing each other).. They were then machine stitched and turned out so that the sticky side of the web comes out...These in turn were ironed onto the fabric.. This helps to hold the design in place while doing applique..Actually it is not necessary to do applique after they are ironed on ..But I just wanted to make sure that they remain there intact even after undergoing several washing cycles..I have done even the applique using simple machine stitch..The stars were then embellished along the sides using back stitch in gold metallic floss..The tips have been adorned with a few gold beads.The backing material is plain red fabric , the same one used as border. As well I have used some batting to give a li'l cushion effect to my runner.
