Get Ready to Stitch

Most of the projects in this book are decorated with appliqué embellished with simple embroidery stitches. Appliqué is an easy technique using fusible webbing, but I love to be creative, and I just can’t help adding those special little touches with extra hand-worked embroidery stitches and the addition of the occasional button or charm.

Blanket stitch is my favourite appliqué stitch, which can be done by hand or by machine, and even if you choose to machine stitch you can still achieve a hand-stitched look with clever thread selection. This is just one of the secrets I share with you in this chapter, and my aim is to help you to get the best results for your appliqué and embroidery.

Fabrics and Threads

I had such fun finding fabrics to use in this book. I decided on a colour palette of teal, raspberry, brown and cream, and, as dots are in such favour, I opted for those in all different sizes, with some beloved stripes and florals of course.

Linens and cottons
