A-Z of Craft. A

Brought to you today by the letter A.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading through The Craft Companion Book by Ramona Barry and Rebecca Jobson.

I enjoyed it so much that I thought I would write some blog entries using the entries from A to Z

A is for Applique.

Applique can be done by hand or by machine.

Sue Spargo does the most amazing hand applique using felt and a seemingly endless type of stitch.

This is my example of a butterfly.img_1250

Machine applique can be done using a variety of stitches too.

This example is done using a satin stitch.

My other favourite stitch for machine applique is the blanket stitch.

You can’t tell that I like green, can you?

What do you like to applique?
