    Does anyone have the link. tutorial or Youtube video for Eleanor's method with the straw and ball point bodkin? I have googled a bit with no luck.

    I've used this method for years and love it. I don't particularly like the "stuck down" look of fusible webbing. By having the edges of my applique pieces already turned, it gives me a more traditional applique look. I usually hand applique these pieces. I only use my sewing machine to applique if it's a pattern that I can download to my embroidery machine.

    I have used the interfacing method for applique, one a wall hanging of pansies, some quite small (and leaves) and had no problems if you use your needle to keep the interfacing under control if edging by hand. I haven't attached the pieces by machine as I enjoy hand applique best. Another thing you can do with this method is to put a small amount of filling into the piece to give a more dimensional look to you applique. I actually had never seen or heard of it and was just one of my experiments - was a bit of a let down to find others had already been doing it. L. O. L.
