I have been sewing and crafting most of my life. I took a quilting class and fell in love. My determination to learn applique lead me to design Innovative Applique. I wanted: to eliminate tasks like tracing templates and placement guides, create accurate shapes that did not involve years of practice and dimension without cutting and stuffing. Innovative Applique answers all those needs. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY The instructions included in this pattern make it possible for everyone to be successful if you chose to hand applique. The flower can be hand or machine stitched. It can also be fused. Choose the method that works for you. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Approximately 21" x 18" depending on border size.
