Firstly you will need:
a computer & printer
sewing thread that matches your felt
a needle & scissors
a sharpie marker or similar
basting spray (505 or similar)
fabric to appliqué your felt to
a ruler & water soluble marker
The first step is to print out the word you want to appliqué. I used the brush script font, but you could use any font you want. Cut out the word carefully, this can be quite fiddly, but take your time.
Place the word face down on the felt & trace around it with a pen. You can use a marker (or anything else that is easy to see) as you are going to cut the pen make away. Be extra careful cutting out the centre of letters & don't forget any i or j dots!
Once you have cut out your felt place it (still face down) on some newspaper & give it a light spray with some basting spray.
Whilst it is tacky, place it in position on your fabric, you can gently adjust it's position until it is right. If you are worried about getting it straight on your fabric, use a water soluble marker & a ruler to mark a line for you to position it on.
Now it is time to head to your sewing machine. Thread your machine with thread that matches your felt & line up your needle so that it is about 1-2 mms in from the edge of your felt- it doesn't matter where you start. Very slowly start sewing, making sure that you try to stay 1-2 mms in from the edge of the felt. Take your time. Stop sewing, raise your presser foot & adjust your fabric, especially when going around tight curves. The slower you go the less likely you are to veer off the felt. Once you get back to where you started, cut your thread, leaving a tail about 10cms long. Now go back & repeat the process for the inside of any letters that you need to do & any j or i dots.
Once you have finished all the machine sewing take a hand sewing needles & pass all the threads through to the back of your work, tie them off & them cut them so the back of your work is neat & secure.
Now flip your handiwork over & admire...
I hope this tutorial was helpful, i'd love to see any felt appliqué you do.
