We’re really excited about our Valentine Sew Along this week and we’d love to have you join us. Four Therm O Web designers have created applique blocks for you that will be shown over the next four days. All the blocks are 10 ½” x 10 ½” unfinished and can be made with fat quarters and/or scraps. Patterns will be available with supplies and instructions. You’ll have plenty of time to applique and stitch the blocks before February 14th when we’ll share four projects and patterns using the blocks. You can make one of the projects or all four…it’s up to you! Once you finish your blocks, we’d love to see them on Instagram with the tag #thermowebsewalong
Valentine Sew Along
Designers for our Valentine Sew-Along:
Making the Valentine blocks are a breeze when using EZ Print Lite Sheets or Heat n Bond Lite, Iron-on Adhesive. The EZ Print Lite Sheets use an inkjet printer so there’s no tracing. So easy! If you’d rather trace your designs, Heat n Bond Lite, Iron-on Adhesive is the way to go. Both products have a protective paper that easily peels off when you’re ready to apply the designs.
