It’s no secret that I love decorating for a nursery.  Last spring, I made some baby bird stitcheries using Therm O Web’s HeatnBond Lite iron-adhesive. It’s my favorite way to applique!

To create the sweet shapes I gather my supplies.  This project requires some HeatnBond Lite, scissors, a pen, and a lightbox (or sunlit window).

First, I trace the images (in reverse) onto the paper-side of the HeatnBond Lite.

I loosely cut around each image and place it with its corresponding scrap of fabric.  The gritty-side of the HeatnBond Lite should touch the “wrong” side of the fabric scrap.

Using medium-heat and no steam, I iron over the area to bond the HeatnBond Lite to the fabric. Just a couple seconds is all that is needed!

After it has cooled, I carefully cut out each shape and peel off the paper from the back.

After I have arranged all the images onto my stitchery, I iron over them to fuse them in place.

The final step is to stitch the shapes in place either by machine or hand!

    I never made a project like this. Looks great to me. I think I can use the idea for a scrapbook page too. Love the colors and texture of it.
