When I began embroidering several years ago, I was too scared to even open an applique file and send it to my machine! I finally gained enough courage to try an applique, and the rewards of doing so were incredible. Appliques simply make me giddy. I love their freshness and simplicity. And one of the greatest benefits is the ability to make it your own with your choice of fabrics!
Born in the late 70's, I was impacted in the 80's by wonderful geometric prints and simplistic artwork. Put three simple trees in a row on a tshirt, and I will call it beautiful! I am super excited about the recent popularity of retro trends with a modern twist. Don't get me started on chevrons. I am seriously thinking about outfitting our whole house and wardrobes with chevron prints. Anyway, appliques are great ways to incorporate your own special style in each design…
