Modern Motif Reverse Applique Workshop

Reverse Applique is a great technique to showcase and make your work original. You will work with the multiple templates to make dandelion motif applique on a large piece of background fabric. You will learn how to trace the motif on the fabric, use freezer paper as an outline to make the shapes, fold the applique seam in place nicely, and baste and sew the applique. By project completion, you will be confident with the technique!
