Today I have worked out a really good way to do the applique for my Istanbul piece.
I have been using my large light table and baking parchment and sticking the whole thing together using my iron before then putting it on to the fabric. I printed it once it was on the baking parchment.
Now that I have started my piece I wish I had made it even bigger. I suppose I will just have to make another.I have drawn the larger version of Ripponden and have all the dyed fabric so it is just a case of getting on with it.
