....but, with the help of a few people who know a lot about sewing.... I managed to use it for the inner ears and foot pads of my third bunny.
I didn't know about the tissue paper trick yet when I did the ears, and they are easier to do than the little foot pads....... I pinned only in the seam allowance so that even if there were pin pricks that did show... they would not be visible when I turned the ear right side out.
Then I learned about the tissue paper trick. Use tissue paper against the good side when stitching it to the other fabric... this is by hand for me when I am doing foot pads. I just can't seem to do them by machine yet..... then after turning, just tear it away.. et voila! you have a pristine piece of fabric. Worked like a charm. Thanks Richy.....
The brocade pieces survived intact...not a pick mark or hole anywhere..... and I now have a pretty pink bunny.
