Vinyl Reverse Applique & Free Motion Stitching Tutorial DIY

I've been wanting to experiment with vinyl and so I picked some up at the local fabric store. They sell it just like fabric ... cuts from a bolt.

Then I cut the fabric within the stitched area to reveal the vinyl.

I sandwiched a crocheted flower in between another piece of drill and the stitched drill and then used red thread to free motion stitch everything together.

Then I added some more accents with white gesso

So cool, right? I'm definitey hooked on vinyl. For now.

Happy creating. :)

Hi Jenny,

What a neat idea and I really like how it turned out. I am a great admirer of your free motion stitched words - what sewing maching do you use to do this. I'd love to know as I would love to have a go at this and know that at some point I will need a new machine as my little Janome doesn;t even let the feed dogs down!! Many thanks for all your share.

Using vinyl is a brilliant way to add paper accents to fabric/textile pieces too, with out ruining them with stitching - I used it a lot when making bookmarks and wrist-cuffs, but this darling flower looks simply great under vinyl! =)
