“Orange Peel Pillow”

Machine Appliqué (with foundation that puffs after washing)

(pattern available)
I will be teaching a machine appliqué technique that will look like you did the appliqué by hand when you are finished with your project! 

We will make this scrappy Orange Peel pillow using a foundation paper on the inside of your appliqué, that when soaked will change to a puffed fiber.  Because your appliqué fabric will be pre-washed and shrunk and the rest of your fabric will not, this will pull your stitches into your base fabric making the stitches disappear!

I will have kits available for sale as well as the foundation paper to make the class easy to prepare for and easy to complete your project!


"Bonjour Bicycle Pillow"

Hand embroidered and hand appliqued using an adhesive pattern on the top of the fabric as your guilde!    

"My Sweet Apron"

Hand Appliqued, needle turn using an adhesive  pattern on top of the fabric as your guide!

(Pattern Available)

Many people are intimidated with needle turn applique.  My technique makes it easy to prepare your applique and simple to make it right!   We will make this darling apron with just a bit of applique on it to get you hooked on hand applique for your future special projects!  


"Crazy Cushion"

This project is paper pieced with 3 different pattern designs: Star Jasmine, Pineapple (Not showing) and Flying Geese. It has a zipper and strap for carrying to wherever you need to have a cushion!  The finished size is 16"x16"x3".
