I have a pattern for a grouping of several Sun Bonnet Sue's that are only 6 inches tall. It will be a picture that I thought I would frame. The directions for the pattern say to use the applique technique of my choice. I haven't done applique for a long time (and that's only been in class--nothing on my own til now!) and don't know what to do. The hands and shoes are very
small. I thought if I just fused the patterns down with raw edges it would be okay, but do I want to finish the edges? Would you just fuse everything and not worry about the raw edges? Or would you buttonhole stitch/zig zag around the larger pieces only and not worry about the smaller pieces. OR should I just needle-turn everything and not fuse anything. If I fuse, can I still have turned-under edges and what weight fuseable should I use? I hope someone can help me figure out what to do because I really want this to turn out nice for a present.
