Machine Appliqué

I am very new to appliqué and my first proper attempt was under instruction during a workshop at the Handmade Fair in Warwickshire earlier this year.  Needless to say, like most crafts I’m trying lately I loved it!

This cute bunny bag is the result of that workshop

The HOPE cushion below is the product of a training course I attended (also earlier this year) which just happened to be an appliqué task.  I was training as a facilitator so that I can deliver a course called Peaeced Together , I will run our first one in September as part of an initiative by a local charity, Helping Hands Community Project.  You can find out more about these Organisations by clicking their names.  More on both will also be posted during September.

And this one was part of an activity from a pilot drop group called Esther Days (another vision by Helping Hands) which will also begin this September.

You will be able to follow the story of the courses on my other blog Simple Joys but the crafts we do will be posted here.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday wherever you are 😊
