Meet your instructor, appliqué designer Lisa Archer, and dive into your first project as you add a darling appliqué design to a skirt using the raw-edge method.

Customize a sweet crown and message before embroidering a t-shirt or onesie using Lisa's techniques for split appliqué. Audition, hoop, embroider and complete your design with Lisa's expert tips along the way.
Create an adorable children's t-shirt with a monster pocket that holds a small monster stuffed animal. Lisa explains how to create the pocket and shares ideas for adding pockets to other appliqué designs.
Add some fun to the appliqué you made in Lesson 4 by bringing a stuffed monster to life. You'll be amazed at how quickly and easily you can create this project, all done entirely in the hoop!
Highlight nostalgic t-shirts with a cute twist on a t-shirt quilt. Adorn your favorite tees with satin-stitch appliqué and learn to deconstruct your tees to create the quilt blocks.
