My new, just for me project, is hand appliqué. I never thought I would be interested in it, but I’m loving it! So we are chatting about the different ways to prepare pieces for appliqué, and some tips and tools to put to use while stitching.

Craftsy class:  Big Techniques from Small Scraps with Sarah Fielke.

I’ve also referenced Jill Finely’s videos with Fat Quarter Shop, for a slightly different approach, but really loved the small project in the Big Techniques from Small Scraps class to get me started. Isn’t it cute :
