Add eye-catching designs to any project with three accessible appliqué methods!

Join me on Craftsy to create a set of charming blocks using raw-edge, prepared-edge and needle-turn appliqué. First, learn how to transfer patterns to fusible web for raw-edge appliqué. Start sewing as you secure your design with zigzag stitches, and find out how to smoothly pivot around tricky curves and corners. Next, discover how to use freezer-paper appliqué techniques for crisp, clean results. Construct your templates, and follow along with me to turn your edges and showcase your precision with invisible monofilament stitching. You'll also find out how to use the blind-hem stitch for a hand-sewn effect, and enjoy a detailed hand-sewing demonstration. Finally, unlock flawlessly finished edges with my stress-free methods for needle-turn appliqué. You'll finish class with the skills, confidence and inspiration to add beautiful appliqué to all your future projects!

I have watched the class through 2 times. I find your teaching to be relaxed, thorough and totally understandable. . . . I truly appreciate your step by step methodology and your showing your own "mistakes" and then telling us how to fix them. I love that you do not rush through any techniques--each is given equal time and attention. ★★★★★
