Guest Spot on Studio 5: “Frayed Applique” Projects

May 4th, 2010

We are out of our own studio this week, but we are at one of our favorite places — KSL/NBC’s Studio5 Show!  Take a look at the project Kris showed Brooke (co-host of Studio5) today! “Frayed applique” is such a fun and easy technique! Click on the video above to watch the entire segment.

Click here to download your free, frayed applique patterns!

Come back next week as we’ll show you how to make the darling picnic quilt you see, as well as matching accessories. It is easy, easy, easy – we promise!

And we didn’t want to leave out the boys! Using the same “frayed applique” technique, we made this truck, but did so with felt! The pattern for the truck is also free and can be found at the link above. This would look great on a t-shirt or even a quilt for your little guy!

Plus, you’re going to get the first look at our “new” studio redesign!!

The timing of it couldn’t be better. We’ve been painting and DIY-ing all over the place and creating a new environment for “The DIY Dish!” We’ve had some help from two of our friends who are about to launch their own interior design website. We can’t wait to introduce them to you! And of course we’ll show you how to do the same kinds of things in your own homes over the next few months. Keep watching – we’re going to have some fun!

Fabrics mentioned on the show are from Utah designers, Joel Dewberry and Shari of Doohikey Designs.

Thank you Studio 5 for having “The DIY Dish!” on your show!

    SUPER cute:) Can’t wait!

    Loved your spot this morning….where can I get those cute fabrics you talked about. I am wondering about the second one you mentioned that is by a Utah designer…not the dewberry one, the other.

    Me too, loved your spot this morning, just found your blog because of it, but….I would love to know the names of the designers you spoke about, there is no mention anywhere on the Studio 5 website. Looking for some fantastic WOW fabric to make window coverings and everything on the market is just so boring. Any help you could give would be great.

  • May 4, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    Love it!! Nicely done, ladies! :)

    Hi that was wonderful…I am with the others…I would love to know if your local fabric designers have their fabrics anywhere else…like WA maybe?…..Those are fantastic!!

    Another great show. Now I know what to put over a machine embroidery on a shirt. Love the shirt but not the embroidery.

  • May 5, 2010 at 11:17 am

    This is another inspiring episode!! The push pin cakes were a hit in my family. Now I think they will go insane when I use this frayed applique.!!

  • May 5, 2010 at 11:55 am

    Love this technique, so free and easy.

    I love the look of the frayed appliques!

  • May 5, 2010 at 2:16 pm

    Omg ladies, this is awesome, luv luv that idea..
    I’ve used Beacon adhesive to get the frayed to stayed on and not go any further that seems to help, fray check becomes yellowing, if you know of another product that works please let me know..

    I am a regular now and hooked on my weekly “DISH”! You have such fun and easy projects. My creative giant has been unleashed! Thanks for a world of fun! Love to find out more about your fabric sources!

    Isn’t it funny how we hated the idea of wearing our siblings hand me downs. because they would appear to be exactly what they were. Now, however, our clothes can’t get tooooo frayed! The more holes, and the more frayed the better!
    The frayed look is cute, but it’s not my favorite, so I’ll continue to have clean lines. But these beautiful fabrics are wo wonderful. They make me wish I lived in Utah! Thanks ladies for sharing your projects with us.

    LOVE DIY Dish! As a teacher with summer break fast approaching, I can’t wait to spend some quality (and quantity) time on some creative projects.

  • August 11, 2010 at 3:54 pm

    Absolutely loved the frayed applique! That adds so much texture to a quilt or wallhanging. Now I have to go play with the idea and see what I can come up with.

    Thanks so much for sharing,

    […] Well it’s a technique that is very simple to master as well as quick, easy, and a beatiful addition to just about any project! We’ve added them to clothing, handbags, tea towels and more! It’s a technique which Kris shared recently on Studio 5. […]

    A great job here. I really enjoyed what you say.and I really want to say this is the perfect blog. You could certainly argue with you over a year since new twist to the most difficult subject, know cool well-written. It is a lot of people say there is certainly more interesting what you said about it constantly because it has a new voice, and keep it . Simply amazing, a good one and I’m looking forward to to see more from you.

  • September 17, 2012 at 2:05 am
