Yay, fall is just about here and I'm excited to welcome in the cooler weather of my favorite time of year. Autumn always reminds me of comfort and so when I was trying to think of a project to create that symbolizes all those warm, fuzzy, comfy things, I thought what could be better represent that then a wool felt applique project!
Here's a video of how it all come together:
- ScanNCut Machine and accessories
- ScanNCut Deep Cut blade
- ScanNCut Pen Holder
- ScanNCut Erasable Pen
- Wool felt in a variety of colors (I got mine here.)
- Heat 'n Bond Iron-On Adhesive
- Embroidery floss
- Embroidery needle
Step 1 - Write "happy" onto a piece of scrap paper and then scan it into the ScanNCut using the "Scan To Cut Data" option and then save your design.
Step 2 - Press the home button and then open up your design by going to "patterns" and then "saved data". Unify the letters so you're able to move them anywhere on your screen.
Prepare your felt by ironing Heat N Bond onto the backside of it. Once your design is unified you can then apply your felt to the mat and scan it into the machine so you can line up your word "hello" exactly where you want it.
Step 4 - Choose the designs and colors of felt that you want to use and then cut them out using the Deep Cut Blade on your ScanNCut. Make sure you do a test cut first to ensure you're cutting through the felt but not through your mat. If your mat gets too much lint on it from the felt use a baby wipe to gently clean it off then allow it to dry and it will be good to continue using.
Happy scanning, cutting, and embroidering!
