clam chowder - simmering nicely

Last week I showed you the beginnings to this project, and I'm back with a little update.

So far I've cut out a pile of clam shapes using the clamshell die, and ironed them onto the reverse of fabric (I am using an iron on, dissolvable stabiliser - head back to last week's post for more details on that)

I've cut out all my clams about 1/4" bigger than the templates and using a glue stick (just a regular one, not a fabric one) I've stuck the edges down. Now I'm on to the fun part - arranging and sewing!

I'll be back next week with an update!!!!

(fabrics used are lotus pond by Rae Hoekstra for cloud 9 fabrics)
