Welcome to Day 5!
Again we delve into the scrap bag.
I’m so excited about today’s task.
We’re making cute little cars!
Does it look familiar?
It’s the car I designed for my fabric line “Vintage Play.”
I also used it in my “A Christmas Sampler” pattern.
I like using freezer paper templates,
then machine stitching the pieces onto the background fabric,
but you can use your favorite appliqué method.
Since we’re making 3 cars for our quilt,
you’ll need 3 of each car part (6 tires total).
I cut 3 rectangles of freezer paper,
stapled them together with the templates on top
then cut them out with paper scissors.
Notice I’m not showing cutting out the circles.
I realized the wheels were about 1″
so I’m using my pre-cut 1″ circles that I use for the Tiny Dresden centers.
The next thing I did was alter your templates so you could do the same!
Next, I removed the staples.
Then, after much deliberation, I selected the fabrics,
fused the templates & cut out the fabric adding 3/16″ seam allowance.
I used my magic Apliquick Bars to help me glue the seam allowance to each piece with narry a divot!
You only need to make the parts for 3 cars today.
Don’t worry about the gluing or appliqué part,
we’ll save that for another day!
I made a PDF of the reversed templates for you.
