Tip #1 - making a curved stem.
ALWAYS work on the wrong side of the fabric.
Now move the ruler in to a 1/2 inch and score again. Move the ruler to 3/4 inch and cut.
You will have a 1/4 inch bias strip.
To keep the strip together, we used Roxanne Glue Baste It. Cathy put a few drops along the outer fold of the strip and using her fingers, pressed it closed.
Next week - applique using a circle foot!
