- Fabric Paint
Now as in Border Tutorial reinforce your Fabric with Interfacing. It Interfacing shouldn't come off.
Use a Copy of your Pattern and draw all the Lines on the Fabric. Use a Pen that you can see well, but doesn't stand out too much from the Fabric or Paint. Otherwise you can still see the Drawing after Sewing.
(NEVER cut the Original!)
Tip: You can also draw the Pattern on the Back and sew in with a straight Stitch as an Orientation before you turned the Fabric and actually Sewn.
Now our prolonged Step: Cut it out carefully. In this case you may not cut the Seam, otherwise the Thread loosen. Cut off all the Fabric Threads, that stick out.
When you use double-sided Interfacing just put it ironed, then it will not slip.
Sew a second Round with the Zigzag along the white Pattern.
You can use different kind of Threads, like normal, shiny or metall Thread to get a speciel Effect.
Please note that the Pattern is not interrupted (if possible).
Cut the Pleather in the same Size as the Color Fabric and sew it all together.
As a little Extra, I stitched the Bias Tape with Zigzag.
