This applique project had moved to the top of summer sewing list because with Lara's Crafted Applique Method, tackling those WELCOME letters will be easy!
And if seeing is believing, here's a peek into her book where she compares her method
with two common applique methods:
Looking at the Fig 3, you can see why I'm not dreading all the curves and thin pieces in my letters as with Lara's Crafted Applique Method, I'm confident they will come out as smooth and clean as her Oak leaves....with no frayed edges!
As you can see in her Table of Contents, Lara explains the process in easy to follow steps and I was able to gather the supplies I didn't have on hand at JoAnne's for under $8.00.
Along with introducing this fantastic new applique method Lara also included a variety of projects
in her book like this adorable Catmint Cottage sewing machine cover! It's so cute!
