Applique, A Four-Letter Word?

May 31, 2008 at 7:23 pm 1 comment

Hardly! If you don’t like hand applique, you probably haven’t tried Invisible Applique. It’s a “needle turn” ladder stitch where the thread is completely hidden.

I’ll be teaching a workshop in Flint, Michigan on June 28th in my @Home Classroom called “A New Way To Piece: Applique.” In the morning you’ll learn how to applique with Invisible Applique and in the afternoon I’ll teach you how to hand piece with it! WHY?! Because the stitch is really a running stitch sewn inside-out! You stitch from the RIGHT SIDE, your intersections will meet perfectly (because you can see what they’ll look like before you sew them) and the finished product is indistinguishable from traditional hand piecing. Besides, it’s way fun!

Invisible Applique by Ami Simms Can’t make it to Flint? Try the next best thing, your very own copy of Invisible Applique.

    Ami, Well this looks easy when you do it but l guess I will have to try it first. Sure makes those stitches disappear. Not sure how you set it up at first but I think actually doing it will help clear that up. Thanks for the great tutorial and for the wonderful work you do for AAQI. Love your blog and website. Give Madison a big slurpy one for me, if you dare.
