PLEASE NOTE: This is a downloadable PDF eBook.

I have been sewing most of my life and find it to be one of the few things that truly lifts my spirit. Every time I sit down to sew, something changes within me. I feel a creative joy and a release from life’s burdens.

When you surrender to your creative side, you’ll open up your life to all sorts of creative adventures. Combine this with the art of appliqué and the possibilities are endless.

And that is my vision for this book, Appliqué Made Easy: A Beginner’s Guide to Simple Appliqué Techniques. It will allow you to express yourself through the art of appliqué.

Why appliqué? In the world of sewing, appliqué drops all the rules and lets you express just about anything using scraps of fabric. It can be a way to tell a story, draw a picture, or embellish a simple item.

As you make your way through the different chapters in this book, you will see your creativity unfold. My hope for you is that, through the process, you will find a way to express your true self through appliqué.

The 47-page full-color eBook contains detailed writing, colorful photographs, along with resources, and handouts all designed to help you understand the process of appliqué.

There are five chapters designed to take you through the steps of learning appliqué.

* Essential Sewing and Appliqué Supplies
* Straight Stitch Appliqué
* Zigzag Appliqué and Lettering Technique
* Reverse Appliqué
* Fussy Cut Appliqué

Each chapter allows you to build skills and knowledge before moving forward. You will follow a series of instructions and photographs that take you step-by-step through the process of appliqué.

The eBook also contains a detailed supply list so you will know exactly which products you need (and which ones aren't necessary).

Once you’ve found success with a few simple projects, you will be able to move on to creating your very own unique appliqué designs.

Join me in exploring this simple-to-learn yet fulfilling sewing technique you’re guaranteed to use in unique ways to embellish things you love and create gifts for friends and family.
