Fabric Chain

 


1 Fat Eighth Bundle

3 yards of Fast2Fuse by C&T Heavy Weight double sided fusible.
BasicGrey Painted Brads
Scissors, Rotary Cutter, Mat, and Ruler
Coordinating Thread
Iron

 
Step 1:

Cut your Fat Eighth’s in half lengthwise.



Step 2:

Cut your fusible in strips that measure 2 ½” x 10”

Step 3:

Lay one of the fusible strips centered on your fabric and press the ends in towards the center. Be sure to only iron over the very ends of your fabric to adhere the fabric to the fusible, otherwise your iron may get residue on it from the exposed fusible.

Step 4:

Fold and press the other two ends in just to the fusible.



Step 5:

Fold and press the folded ends over the fusible and press. Your folded edges should overlap.

 
Step 6: {Optional}
Top stitch along both short ends and down the center. I like to do a double stitch down the center to give it a finished look.



Step 7:

Using an ice pick or Awl and Hammer {Something sharp} poke holes in both ends of the strip. Insert the pointed end of the brads into the two end holes that match up and close the brad off. You can be creative at this step and add just two or three brads or you can add some silk flower embellishments before you insert the brad.



Have Fun!
