Learn how to adapt appliqué to make quick and easy Christmas ornaments. Make a baker's dozen and add them as an extra gift on a present. The basic technique can be used with most any appliqué where the design is fully contained within the appliqué fabric area.

Why Applique?

I love appliqué! It's easy, it offers design variety, and it works on a wider range of fabrics and textures than standard appliqué. How else could you embroider a white snowman on a fluffy red towel and not have it turn out pink? Plus, appliqué with the embroidery machine comes out with perfect curves and corners every time!
