Appliqué the Sew Quirky Way

Fresh Designs for Quick and Easy Appliqué
Mandy Murray


Mandy Murray has a unique style and that is reflected in her irreverent, humorous approach to designing that can’t fail to make you smile.

Mandy uses fusible appliqué to bring her designs to life and she explains this technique with step-by-step instructions and illustrations at the beginning of the book along with specific advice about getting the most from your sewing machine and using unusual fabrics. Other appliqué and piecing techniques covered include fussy cutting, layered appliqué, fabric selection and fabric 'auditioning' so you choose the best fabric for your project; how to get the right tension on your sewing machine and which feet to use, as well how to choose the right threads and needles for the best results.

As well as the main techniques section there are 12 exciting projects to choose from. Mandy is known for her fun and quirky designs which include wall art, embellishments on clothing, cushions, quilts and an apron. The full-size appliqué patterns are included on a pull-out pattern sheet so you don’t need to print them out and stick pages together, and all the appliqué templates are included at full-size so you can get going straight away once you’ve decided which design to tackle first!

The projects come together quickly and easily and make the perfect funky present for families and friends.
