Materials needed:

  • Heart Fabric by Linda Stubbs for Fabrics by Spectrix ©2005 Peace Creek Collections™
  • Kreinik Iron-On Threads: 1/8" Ribbon in 6300 Meadow; #16 Braid in 6010 Pearl, 6130 Red; #8 Braid in 6300 Meadow
  • 8x10 Sheet of Treasure Tape (or fusible interfacing)
  • Jean Jacket or Vest

Instructions:  

1. Make sure the vest is cleanand dry before beginning.

2. Turn your iron onto the highest heat setting and allow it to heat thoroughly.

3. Cut out your fabric square. Leave about 1" of border around the outside of the print. Use your iron to fold and press the extra fabric around to the back.

Use Treasure Tape to attachyour fabric to your vest or jacket. Cut the tape slightly smaller than yourfabric square.  Peel back the white liner and apply the tapeto the back of your fabric.  Smooth out any air bubbles withyour fingers.  Peel back the red liner and center your fabricon your vest.  Press firmly to adhere.  Ironover your design to heat-set the bond.

4. Begin embellishing. We usedMeadow ribbon on the green parts of the border and Pearl braid in the cornersand around the outside wavy border; Red braid on the heart; and Meadow braid onthe wavy border and in a loop design around the heart.  Layyour iron-on thread at a starting point, cover with the Teflon Press Cloth, andtack down with your iron. Press the thread in sections, ironing for 3 to 5seconds to make sure the thread adheres. 6. When finished, clip the thread andbegin with another color in your next area.

Wearables get a lot of, well, wear, so if the thread starts to pop off, simplyre-press with a hot iron.
