Felted wool applique workshop with Sallieann where she uses cotton perle thread on her sewing machine to produce this ‘hand stitched’ look.
Wool applique by machine means you are able to get more projects finished than if you would working by hand – but the effect is the same.
Sallieann talks you through the stages of creating this lovely little project starting with the tracing off of the pattern; through setting up the machine and the stitch length and reminds us that the tension needs to be adjusted – that’s the disc on the top of the machine NOT the bobbin! – and we get to see how well she is able to pivot round the corners, using the open toed applique foot so that she has great visability.

And if you have enjoyed this workshop then you might like to take a look at the patterns by Paula Doyle for Penny Ruggs and by Flower Applique by Kate Percival where she does actually work by hand!
Sallieann enjoys traditonal quilting techniques and has won several quilt show awards in the UK and the USA. Be sure to check out her wool applique projects using a blend of hand and machine sewing.
