Machine embroidered applique comes in a variety of styles ... but
there's nothing quite like the quirky handcrafted charm of blanket
stitch applique! Borrowing from a popular method of hand-stitching

visible stitches. Cozy and textural, they'll help you create
projects sure to make a crafty impression!

You'll also need fabric for your applique pieces (we used
quilters cotton), some fabric to stitch on, medium weight cutaway
stabilizer, and temporary spray adhesive.
