My Curved EPP Movie Tutorials

I've been planning to make some how-to videos for a while now, but just haven't had the time to sit and learn something new. But with my obsession with curved EPP threatening to take over my life, I thought it was about time I showed the world what all the fuss was about, so I sat down and learnt how to use iMovie and made my first series of short tutorials. And what better place to start than with this gorgeous fussy-cut EPP Flower Cushion.



There will be four tutorials in all, the first one below starts with fussy-cutting each of these simple shapes, and then glue-basting them using a Sewline glue pen. I know there are traditionalists out there who prefer to thread baste, but you really can't get nice smooth curves around your shapes without using glue, and believe me, once you have pieced your shapes and removed the papers, you would never know glue was ever there!

So if you would like to get stuck into this lovely hand sewing project and have some beautiful fabric to hand that's crying out to be fussy-cut, let's begin by downloading your free paper templates by clicking here. Then click below for the first instalment - enjoy!



Join me next week for the second instalment in which I show you how to hand piece your shapes using a flat back stitch, until then, have a great creative week everyone!

  1. Beautiful! I'm especially enamoured with the quilting. I'm not an EPPer, but maybe I should take the plunge. : )

  2. I really admire the transparency effect where the petals seem to overlap. Your hand-stitching is just perfect.
