Tulle Butterfly Applique

By:

Use tulle fabric to make an applique. This technique gives you many possibilities for ornaments, dresses and even weddings, and there is no need to sew with the decorative iron-on threads. Be careful not to touch the tulle with the hot iron; always use a Teflon press cloth.

Materials:

  • Iron-on 1/8" Ribbon in 6420 Sky Blue
  • Iron-on #16 Braid in 6120 Pink
  • 9" x 12" Kreinik Teflon Press Cloth

  • Pins

  2. Place nylon tulle squares together, center on a large Teflon Press Cloth, and pin through all layers.
     
  3. Center tulle squares over paper pattern on work surface.
     
  4. Using 1/8" Ribbon and small press cloth, iron ribbon to tulle following outline on pattern. Be careful not to touch the tulle inside.
