While tidying up last week, I came across an envelope that contained a bunch of extra bits leftover from an earlier applique project. I got a little sidetracked, created a bowl and began arranging these pieces.
So what do you do if you want to remember exactly how you arranged something? I knew that I could just take a photo, but that would not guarantee that I could get everything back into the same spot.
I decided to lay a piece of Mylar (similar to stencil or template plastic) and used a Sharpie marker to trace the elements. I made a few notations for placement of colour and pattern. Now I have a copy of the design layout ready for easy transfer to a background fabric. This is will also work perfectly for times when you might want to make multiples of the same block.
Linking to Nina Marie's Off The Wall Fridays ...lots of wonderful creativity going on over there
