Eureka!

Do you ever have a moment where a great idea strikes you and then believe yourself to be the cleverest person?

I have just realised that you can buy fusible webbing for applique in A4 sized flat sheets. Generally I buy it from a roll of paper. It’s wide and it always has a curl to it. I draw up the shapes that I want to applique by hand, tracing each shape with a pencil.

NOW… with these A4 sheets, I have drawn up my applique shapes ONCE onto a piece of A4 paper and…

I can just run the fusible webbing sheets through the photocopier on my printer.

You can’t begin to imagine how exciting this is, how many hours I’ll save, how tricky I feel every time I push the copy button and one more copy just slides right out ready to be cut up.

Eureka!

    You are such a clever girl! 🙂

  2. Ooooh! I can feel the excitement from here.

  3. I am clearly living in another world.

    I get excited by finding some abandoned chocolate in the bottom of my handbag.

    Good for you though! 🙂

  4. How exciting! But then I realize that I’ll likely never use your idea as appliques and I don’t go well together. Drat. I’ll store your idea for someone else!

  5. I tried putting freezer paper through my printer. It worked for about half the sheets. This might work better!

  6. This is Greek to me! 🙂
