Make a Quilt Block with Soft 3D Parts – video tutorial

Make a Quilt Block with Soft 3D Parts - a video tutorial from Shiny Happy World

It’s so much fun to add extra 3D embellishments to your applique quilts!

There’s a post here showing how to add small 3D pieces to an applique block – teeth and small bear ears.

And I teach several 3D options in my Cute Quilt-As-You-Go Applique Monsters class on Craftsy. Here are a few examples.

Applique quilt blocks with 3D pieces - tutorial from Shiny Happy World

You can see that these are mostly longer pieces that you want to flap and dangle. But what if you want them to stand up – like bunny ears?

You can do that for quilts – just like you can do it for stuffed animals.  Here’s the tutorial for stuffed animals.

The technique for quilts is basically the same – but it’s a tiny bit more involved because applique template pieces have no seam allowances – and you need to account for that if you’re going to sew them into flappy ears.

Don’t worry – it’s easy. I show you how to do it in this video.

See? Not hard at all.

Here are a couple of links you might want.

Happy stitching!

Best,
Wendi
