It's a "Go" Apple Core Die

The Apple Core…

Fall, leaves turning, days shorten, and apples get picked. I decided it would be wonderful to make a table-runner with the apple core die.
I will admit I was very nervous. I have always wanted to use this shape but to trace a template, cut it out and then expect it to match……
NO WAY
Not with theses eyes!!

So, that is why I choose this die.

Here I “Go”.


I first marked my die. I cannot stress how much this helps!!



Picked out some fall fabrics.



Rolled it through the “Go”.



And here they are!



Now comes the hard part, oh so I thought, but look at the notches, they match up perfectly. So, I matched the notches and used pins.



I went to the sewing machine, and hoped it would work.
Not only did it work,
BUT
It worked on the VERY FIRST TRY!!!




I LOVE this wonderful “Go” machine.

Off to make more apple cores!!

YIPPEE!! EVEN I CAN DO THIS NOW!!!!
