The batting that I had didn't work, so I grabbed a piece of interfacing left over from project bag making days.
(Aunt Chrissy made the bags.)
Anywhoose....I learned a lot, not the least of which is that I have no business using a hot glue gun without adult supervision. As a matter of fact, I think this was the first time I actually did use a hot glue gun without adult supervision.
Definitely not for me.
I placed a small order in the amazons for some felt and some Aileen's tacky glue. I am using ribbon for my edges...Miss Lori Holt uses quilted basted edging fabric strip thingies.
(Nope. Not the correct terminology.)
So now I have three boards...two from the Fat Quarter Shop and one that I made. Dearies, I have to say that these silly things have done more for my stitchy peace of mind than almost anything! Who knew something so very simple could be such a huge game changer?
Yes, my fingernails are nekkid. The hot glue gun melted most of my polish off.
And stuck three of my fingers together.
And ruined a perfectly good Hanes old man undershirt from 1987.
Now for some stitching! It's almost 10pm and I have yet to poke something! Yikes!
