9781454702801: Stash Happy: Appliqué: 25 Fresh Projects for Fabric Lovers

Got stash? Great, because we've got super-cute ideas for using it! This third entry in the popular Stash Happy series showcases appliqué, and it features plenty of techniques and unique project ideas. First, a short basics section helps novice sewers get up to speed. Then the fun really begins, with projects that range from embellished store-bought items (like cute Mary Jane shoes) to 100% original creations. Even the motifs offer lots of variety, including kid's drawings, coffee cups, and pretty paisley. How-to photography, templates, and tips speed crafters along their way.

Review:

“All scraps, buts, notions, and leftover fabrics take on transformative powers with appliqué in Shaffer’s latest edition to the Stash Happy series. The book abounds with brightness, joy, and creativity while providing knowledgeable advice on creating and customizing a variety of projects. The basics are carefully described, along with an appliqué sewing kit and templates to prepare crafters. Multiple techniques are employed and well explained in the creation of gifts, home furnishings, and items for adults
and children. Lines often have a hand-drawn quality, and although some of the projects have unfinished seams, they never feel raw but, rather, homey and comforting. The overall style of the book matches the projects in its clean, simple, and precious design, with instructive, bright, colorful photographs. Shaffer’s outstanding color combinations and innovative color schemes make this book a pleasure to flip through. Enticing and encouraging for novices and experts alike.” --Booklist

"The latest in Lark's cheery “Stash Happy” series focuses on projects using a variety of appliqué techniques. A brief introduction covers the basics, and the selection of whimsical projects, most small enough to make in one day, allows crafters to use up accumulated scrap fabric. Crafters interested
in exploring the basics of appliqué with small, simple projects will enjoy this collection." -- Library Journal
