Since a lot of my projects include Appliqués, I thought I’d make a quick video to show you how to applique by hand. The word makes it sound so scary, bit it’s really very easy when you do it this way. You can make so many things with appliqué, from embroidery hoops to cute t-shirts. I just love the personal touch that an appliqué adds! If you find this post useful, make sure to take a look at my How to Embroider for Beginners series.
To appliqué using this method, you’ll need:
- paper-backed interfacing (Wonder Under – Pellon 805 or Heat ‘n Bond Lite)
- fabric scraps
- pencil or pen
Watch my “How to Applique By Hand” video below or head over to YouTube to watch it there. Hope you find it useful. Remember that whatever pattern you trace will be reversed when you cut it out since you iron the interfacing on the back. Hope that makes sense. Let me know if you have any questions about the process.
