    My Hand Applique

    The first has a pucker, but the second is better. It is very relaxing, and I can do this while watching a movie or hockey.

    No, I was just holding it in my hands. Do I need a hoop? It seemed fine. I've only tried it once before several years ago. Did not know what I was doing.

    No hoop for me either for needle turn applique. Nice job. Just go back and clip a couple threads th release the pucker. Then re-sew.

    I do a lot of hand applique, never used a hoop.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    thats really good - You will possible find that the puckers will 'disappear' when its completed and quilted - I never use a hoop either, because if you don't get the tension right you can end up with a lot more puckers.

    I don't use a hoop for applique either. Perhaps just the scraps was confusing with embroidery? Now that I must use a hoop for.

    Boston, here is a good trick I learned, when pinning your pieces in place. Put one pin on front to hold the piece, then pin the rest from the back and remove your top pin. This way you never get your thread caught on the pins!

    No hoop for me , Argentina. I'm not the best at it but I agree it is fun to do.

    Your leaf points are perfect! Great job! No hoop for me, either although I seem to have a collection of them.

    I use a touch of Roxanne's glue instead of pins, but once I run out, I'll be using good old Elmers glue. Just a teeny, tiny drop, no bigger (in fact, smaller) then a tiny pin head, in 4 or 5 places. No puckers that way, and no pin pricks!
