I've never been comfortable with the raw edge of using sheers for shadows so tried this to get a nice clean turned under edge. This will only work for something that has a mildly curved or straight edge though and you do get that double thickness where it is folded under. Not sure if I like it but for the water it might be ok.
So then the next one is turned under by applying spray starch and ironing
Then pin it it the top at both ends and sew as you would any two curved pieces.
Take off the freezer paper and sew. Then iron flat. Leaving the bottom water layer the base fabric.
I then layered the batting and backing and quilted it.
So far so good, now I have to figure out what to use to make the moonlight reflection on the water.
Any suggestions? I've got the dock going in later at the bottom. Has anyone ever tried paint over sheers?
This is where I'm at right now
Update - after I posted this I went to my ironing board and lo and behold there is a dryer sheet that I had ironed flat. It is the perfect size and see thru - ness color wise. So on goes the fusible, cut it to moon shimmer likeness, ironed it down.
I like it :-)
I would still love any feedback or experience any of you have had with sheers though. They usually do not play nice with me but do love the effects that make.
Thank you for stopping by :-)
