Crafted Applique is a new idea for applique that allows for no more fusible webs or glue sticks. The book explains all the ins and outs of Crafted Applique and has a great comparison breaking it down against other forms of applique. But the thing I really love is how great this method is for no-fray raw edge applique. Just look how perfect this hot pad from Lara's book is!!!
As mentioned, the book goes through the whole Crafted Applique technique. When I flipped through the book, I totally knew I wanted to try Crafted Applique on this gorgeous project !!!! It is called Fork Art Christmas and I just love it!!! And what better project to try no-fray applique than with all of those gorgeously tiny curved pieces. So pretty!!!
Oh, and if you happened to see Lara guest blogging at Sew Mama Sew yesterday as part of the tour, you would have seen these totally adorable Call Me Maybe Mug Rug Tutorials. So ya, those might have just been added to the list as well. I mean, how cute are those!!!
So ya, I know have 2 projects added to the list and I can't wait to give this Crafted Applique a try!!! Be sure to pop on over to Lara's and check out all of the amazing stops on the Crafted Applique Blog Hop!!! There is a lot of amazing applique eye candy to be seen and of course more giveaways!!
