Collection of Raw Edge Appliquè Links

In order for me to learn Raw Edge Appliquè, I went through each of these web sites. I sat at my machine and tried them all, paid attention to all the tips and tricks. I was able to pull from each of these and create my own method that works for me. I hope you are able to do the same...


Raw Edge Appliquè Tutorials/Tips and Links...

This one, she makes a bag, but she has some good info. I prefer the zigzag over the straight line like she does.

Here, she has good info about layering/overlaping. And printing out your own templates.

Here she uses freezer paper, but I have yet to try it. I just found out that freezer paper and wax paper were NOT the same thing!

I prefer how tight her stitches are in this tutorial.

This one here has good pointers on pivoting around corners and circles. I don't tack down like she does. I pull my thread to the back and tie a knot like the others.
