I discovered these wonderful tools when I was in Europe last year and have become totally addicted to using them. I love how neat my turned applique looks when I use the tools combined with either water soluble applique paper or the Vliesoline lightweight single fuse H250.
So lets gather our tools, I have a pair of APLIQUICK tools, my trusty glue pen, Roxannes Glue (no girl can live without this), a pencil, fabrics and some fusible applique paper. You will notice I am working on a black surface, this is one of the nicest colours I have found to work on and this thin rubbery mat stops things from slipping around, rather like sandpaper board, but it doesn’t set your teeth on edge, it rolls up for storage, you can press fabrics on it and when its dirty (not sure how you can tell as its black) you can wash it!
