hey hey applique

I am completely inspired by this Simple Machine Appliqué tutorial on the Sew, Mama, Sew! blog. I am thinking I will applique everything in sight... little garden gnomes on summer beach bags, a matryoshka doll on a breezy knit shirt, aprons with fruits + veggies on 'em (or a big juicy hamburger). Send your suggestions this way, because I'm planning some killer projects that are in need of irreverent and dry-witted embellishments.


  1. Me too! I have been holding off doing some applique but this makes it seem easy!

  2. Hmm... I've never used that Sew Aid with my projects. Was it helpful? I usually just tack it down with pins and sew around the edges.
    I wonder if this helps produce a nicer finish?
