It is off to the beach again, but this time it’s with Beach Girl Betty. She is ready to join Beach Boy Freddie for a little fun in the sun! I think I’d like to join them, too…wouldn’t you?
Beach Girl Flamingo Quilt with StitchnSew Sew-In Fleece
Beach Girl Betty is a wall hanging that measures 15″ x 23″. You can find the pattern for her HERE.
You can find Beach Boy Freddie HERE in a previous ThermOWeb post. They make a great pair!
Making either of them is a breeze when you use ThermOWeb products:
Heat n Bond Lite Iron-on Adhesive
Spray n Bond Basting Adhesive
Stitch n Sew High Loft Fleece
Heat n Bond Light Weight Non-Woven Interfacing
iCraft Fabric Fuse Liquid
Heat n Bond Lite Iron-on Adhesive is just the best for adding applique to any project. The protective paper peels off easily…no scoring needed!
A heatproof applique sheet will help your applique placement be more accurate. Lightly press the pieces in place, let cool, and peel off the heatproof sheet. Apply as directed to the right side of your project following package instructions.
Ironing Heat n Bond Light Weight Non-Woven Interfacing to the back of an applique project adds stability and makes stitching small pieces in place easier.
The little flowers on Beach Girl Betty were sewn with ease and no puckering!
Spray n Bond Basting Adhesive and Stitch n Sew High Loft Fleece make a great combo for adding some thickness to this wall hanging.
Protect the area where you will be working by placing an old sheet of paper under and around the area you’ll be spraying. Place the fleece on the work area, smoothing to remove wrinkles. Place the quilt backing, wrong side down, on top of the fleece. Smooth to remove wrinkles. Rollback three or four inches of the wall hanging back to expose some of the fleece. Using the basting spray, spray fabric from one edge to the other.
Carefully lay the wrong side of the wall hanging backing over the sprayed surface of fleece. Smooth fabric to ensure it adheres to the sprayed fleece and removes any wrinkles. Rollback the rest of the wall hanging back to continue spraying and smoothing a few inches. Check for creases or folds you might have missed.
Turn backing and fleece over to have fleece facing up. Lay quilt front, wrong side down, on fleece. Make sure the quilt front is lined up correctly; smooth out wrinkles. Use the same spray and smooth method as the backing. Trim edges and square-up quilt.
Pockets can be added to the back to insert a dowel for hanging using two 3½” x 3½” squares of fabric. Fold the squares in half diagonally and press on the fold. Place raw edges of folded corners in top corners of wall hanging back. Glue in place using iCraft Fabric Fuse Liquid. Add binding using your favorite method. Cut a dowel to fit between the two corners. The dowel hangs easily on a nail on a wall.
The 3″ letters for Beach Girl Betty were made using Crafter’s Edge Crossover II and cutting dies. The cutting dies don’t have sharp edges, store flat, and come in lots of shapes and sizes.
Beach Girl Betty is ready to hang around your pool or play area.
