Reverse Applique Revealed Tutorial booklet- Learn the wonders of our reverse applique technique for hand and machine in this handy booklet.

For the Machine Appliquer:

  • Soft Fuse (37" x 3 yards) or (18” x 3 yards)-our favorite iron-on fusible. Lightweight, doesn't gunk up your needle and your piece washes up soft.

  • Kai sharp, bent-handled scissors-perfect for cutting fused fabric cleanly with more ease, and the bent-handled shape keeps your hand off the piece.

  • Terial Magic spray-on stabilizer. Just spray, let it dry and iron. Stitch without puckering. Washes out when done.
