Question Need applique tutorials- Help!

I got assigned a work project to build a demo wall-hanging based on a pattern the boss drew up and then teach a class on it. The only major problem is I've only appliqued once, if you can call a satin stitch around a large letter "D" for my nephew's cape applique. I looked at the boss when she handed me this project and said "You know I don't have a clue how to applique, right?". She just smiled and responded with "Guess now's as good of a time to learn as any". Eek! Can someone point me to some good youtube videos or basics tutorials? I'm starting from almost scratch. Thanks in advance!

The first thing you'll have to decide is what applique method you're going to use! I think there's at least a dozen different methods!

First......what kind of design are you doing? If you don't like the idea of fused applique; try Eleanor Burns method with interfacing. Her shows and videos on the method are pretty clear. I have used this and love it.

Thank you! This gives me a place to start. I think the pattern does call for fused applique but I'll double check. Hand-turned seems unlikely given the bosses style.
