This class features Suzanne’s fast and easy technique for reverse appliqué. Students will learn this technique by working on a small individual project using two layers of fabric. With Suzanne’s help, each student will design her/his own piece. We will use stencils Suzanne has on hand or you may bring one of your own. Hand stitching will attach all the layers together, then the top layer is cut to reveal the design.
