I prefer hand applique. I just do the needle turn. The first thing is do is copy the layout of the piece with water soluble marker onto the background piece. I cut out my pieces, pin them onto fabric and sew them down.

I hand applique but I love doing hand work it looks more vintage to me which is the look I like.

I love hand applique. My next big project may be an applique flower design.

I do needle turn applique, would have said that is the only way I do it but I did machine applique for my 2 SBS.
