Scrappy Appliqué is a raw-edge, fusible appliqué technique that is quick and simple to pick up yet allows for many creative possibilities. Utilize your leftover fabric scraps, precuts or any of your favorite fabrics to create a one-of-kind project. Whether you’re new to appliqué or have been appliquéing for years, this method will teach you some new tips, tricks and techniques. This one-of-a-kind technique allows each person to reflect their own personality in their project by the choices of color, fabric, shape and finishing.
