Dare to Dresden starts in just a few more days, so
I've been pretty busy getting ready.
You all probably know this trick, but I ran across a
tutorial HERE about using foil to make the centers
for the Dresdens and thought it was pretty cool.
It really worked and was so easy!
Anna Marie Horner's instructions are really
clear on what to do, but here's a short version of how-to
use foil to create the center of your Dresden.
Lay the circle fabric face down on a piece of foil
making sure the piece is larger than the actual sized
circle you're planning to use. Place a cardboard cut-out
of the actual sized circle that you need on top of the fabric.
Fold the foil in towards the center, going all
the way around.
It will look like this--
Iron all the way around the foil circle, pressing
down so it will crease the inside fabric.
Turn it over and iron again
Remove the foil and cardboard circle
(it will be hot so BE CAREFUL!)
You can reuse the foil several times before
it starts to tear and become unmanageable.
After the Dresden hop is over,
it is time for some Valentine fun!
With a short break, it will then be on to
It's All About Me!
It is just so amazing that Amy Bradley is sharing
this adorable pattern for those of us hopping in
But, that's not all! There's still room
in the Nancy Drew hop so come on and join
in for a sleuthy good time!
