Featured in the PR book!
For a fun embellishment consider making dimensional cut-outs from your garment fabric's motifs. This works best with medium scale prints with designs that are intact and easily cut around, such as a floral. See photo for an example. I used these fabric flowers to trim the top of a child's purse and to make a brooch. Here's an additional picture...

To make these I did the following...

1) Decided which motif would be used.

2) Rough cut around it leaving about half inch margin

3) Fused this rough cut out to Heat and Bond or similar fusible webbing product.

4) Peel off the backing and then fuse the piece to buckram or very heavy duty interfacing.

5) Fuse this piece again to Heat and Bond - buckram against the fusible product.

6) Peel off the back and then fuse to fashion fabric again to cover the back.

7) Now cut out your motifs along their design lines.

8) Use as an embellishment as desired.

When I see a great tip like this I always ask myself why I don't think of these kind of things. Not very creative maybe. Thanks everyone for PatternReview. It sure helps me to be a better sewer.

That's a really good idea. And no satin stitching!
